Upgrade Your Toolkit

Hi there! My name is Joel Pringle and I am a professional architect currently based in Da Nang, Vietnam.

I have been using Revit in real world projects for the past 8 years. These projects have spanned various scales – from private houses to city-scale master plans.

As an Autodesk Revit Certified Professional, I would like to offer my services as a one on one tutor, taking users from beginner to advanced level in this powerful architectural tool. In particular, I offer a unique perspective as a practicing architect and designer, with a bias for strong graphics and visually appealing output.

Please feel free to get in touch with me via the Contact page.

About the Blog

This blog is an attempt at removing the stigma of Revit as a boring productivity tool – demonstrating in sometimes off-beat ways how it can be used in a freer way as part of a design and presentation workflow.

I studied architecture at the University of Cape Town, South Africa and have been working in the industry around the world ever since: New York, Harare, Dubai and now Da Nang in Vietnam.

In first year university I remember being introduced to AutoCAD, Sketchup, 3DSMax, Rhino, and finally Revit. I thought that if Revit is going to be the future, then why bother about the rest. This was the beginning of a long and winding relationship with the software. The more conceptual nature of university led me to find ways to wrangle Revit to do my bidding, breaking many rules, but this has slowly become reconciled with the more practical realities of working the the real world.
