Interior Design Preface by Pieter Schiettecatte from A+I

My new Revit book for interior design has a preface written by the talented Pieter Schiettecatte. I have gotten to know Pieter through a couple of on-going Autodesk beta focus-groups and though online forums. We both have attended Autodesk's Revit Live: Inside the Factory (formerly, Revit Gunslinger Event) in Shanghai China - but not at the same time.

Read about Pieter and then his engaging comments which constitute the introduction to my updated version of Interior Design Using Autodesk Revit 2019.

Pieter Schiettecatte is a leading expert on BIM and the Director of Design Technology at A+I, one of New York City’s leading design firms. A+I was introduced in the...
prestigious Interior Design Magazine’s Hall of Fame (2016), was honored with the AIA NYC Design Award (2017, 2016) and the SARA Award for Design Excellence (2017,2016,2012) and was listed in Architizer’s “Top 10 architecture firms worldwide to watch in 2017.” Before his work at A+I he worked as lead architect on the Ghelamco Arena in Belgium (awarded “stadium of the year 2013,” laureate of Contract’s Magazine Interior Award and Best Of Year Honoree by Interior Design Magazine). Mr. Schiettecatte has consulted on dozens of projects across North America, Europe and West Africa.


Interior design graduates are entering a vastly different professional landscape than existed ten years ago. Traditional drawings, for centuries at the very heart of the design process, have been replaced by a centralized 3-dimensional Building Information Model (BIM). It is hard to underestimate the profound effect that this shift has had on the industry.

Consequently, being proficient in Revit, the world’s most popular BIM software package, has become an extremely valuable skillset for young designers seeking employment with cutting-edge firms.

Revit is known for its challenging learning curve and is not one of those programs that can be learned by trial and error. Therefore, it’s essential that designers aspiring to become comfortable with BIM pick the right learning resources to help them navigate this exciting new way of working.

This book offers exactly that. The author, Dan Stine, is one of the world’s most respected experts on BIM. Dan has written dozens of bestselling books on design software and has spoken at conferences across four continents. He is regularly consulted by the Revit development team on new features and is perfectly positioned to help you stay current with the latest developments. His Interior Design Using Autodesk Revit series has introduced designers around the world to the exciting new tools that BIM has to offer.

As a registered architect with over twenty years of experience Dan also shares valuable designs tips that go well beyond the scope of the typical Revit guide book.  Where other books might tell you which button will place a toilet fixture, Interior Design Using Revit will go into depth on additional concepts a designer needs to think about while developing a restroom: from accessibility codes to sightlines and even how to get tiles to be flush in the wall.

It is this step by step approach centered around real-world problems that has made this book into the unchallenged go-to manual for everyone looking to build a solid understanding of how Revit is used in the interior design world.

If you’re an ambitious designer looking to break into the cutting edge of design, Interior Design Using Autodesk Revit 2019 is the book for you.
