About the author (2008)

Tatjana Dzambazova was the product manager for Revit Architecture in Autodesk for the last two years and has recently moved into a new position where she explores emerging technologies, immersive experiences, and the impact of the Web 2.0 on our lifestyles. Before joining Autodesk in 2000, she practiced architecture for 12 years in Vienna and London. At Autodesk, she has focused on evangelizing technology and established herself as an internationally renowned speaker who has fostered relationships with architects and industry leaders around the globe. Powered with seemingly unlimited resources of energy, Tanja manages to make three days out of one, and when she is not working (is that ever?) or coauthoring technology books, she is advocating wildlife conservation and sustainability, reading books like a maniac, and getting inspired at the theater. If you’re lucky enough to be in the Bay Area, you might catch a glimpse of Tanja cruising the streets on her Ducati Monster.

He holds architectural degrees from the University of Oregon and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

He has been teaching Revit and BIM technology at the Boston Architectural College since 2003. He currently lives in Massachusetts.

Eddy Krygiel is a registered architect, a LEED Accredited Professional, and an Autodesk Authorized Author at BNIM Architects. He has been using Revit since version 5.1 to complete projects ranging from single-family residences to office buildings as large as 1.12 million square feet.
