The team using ArchiCAD, GRAPHISOFT’s BIM solution software has been selected as the winner of this years Open BIM Build London Live 2012 Award for creating the best overall BIM effort as voted by the judges. Teams from all over the globe competed in the event, which is part of the collaborative collaborative design challenge series for BIM practitioners. The 48-hour virtual design competition took place between May 21-23, utilizing revolutionary cloud-based technology. AIDEA, a worldwide Top 100 architecture practice from the Philippines, has won the OpenBIM award at Build London Live 2012 using ArchiCAD for its winning design.
The challenge? Teams were asked to design a Museum of 2012. The design had to hold a cultural and social significance of 2012 given that London is the host of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
“Participating in Build London Live was a fantastic challenge for our team,” said Abelardo Tolentino Jr., AIDEA managing director. “Using ArchiCAD’s unique Open BIM workflow made coordination and updating easy and virtually seamless. It was amazing to watch our design coming together as each phase was completed,” he added.
