Build New York Live- The review

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.

Build New York Live; sponsored by Vectorworks, BIMcrunch. FundLife and organised by Asite, brought the International AEC community together all in the name of BIM.

The competition concluded with presentations to the press and awards presented to the winning teams by two of our Judges, Richard Garber AIA, is Director of NJIT's School of Architecture and Nathan Doughty COO Asite.

Amanda Reichert Business Development Manager Asite North America said

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. From architecture/engineering students to seasoned veterans in the AEC design space, the competition encourages the teams to push beyond the boundaries while under tremendous pressure to deliver the most comprehensive real world design. Aside from it being fun and competitive, the competition helps teams to identify strengths and weaknesses, improve their skills and identify tools to help them deliver better projects for their clients.”
