Build New York Live, the latest competition in the Build Earth Live Series engaged international organisations in a 48hr Global BIM competition. Summary
"The Build New York Live BIM Design competition has brought about great interest globally within the AEC space around working in a Collaborative BIM environment," Amanda Reichert Business Development Manager Asite.
Over the 48hr period, teams competed against each other to redesign the western side of the world famous Hudson Yards, Manhattan, New York.
The timetable of the event is designed to allow the teams to contribute during or after work. At each event, a major site is announced, with a brief for a significant multi-use development. All information was published in interoperable formats. Teams were free to exploit any interoperable technology and encouraged to update a public collaboration site. All observers of the competition were also free to comment and view each team’s workspace.
