Build Earth Live Hyperloop Winners Announced

Posted by Samantha Hyatt on 10/24/16 10:40 AM
Last month, teams spanning borders and times zones raced against the clock for 48 hours to flex their BIM and design muscles through Build Earth Live’s Hyperloop competition. Organized by Asite, the annual competition raises awareness of cloud-based working, international developments in interoperability, and how new technology is revolutionizing construction. With 65 teams made up of 250 designers from 29 countries participating, this year’s event focused on designing termini stations connecting Dubai and Fujairah, which would reduce travel time between the two cities to less than 10 minutes at 10 percent of the cost of conventional high-speed trains. An extra incentive for this year’s teams is that the United Arab Emirate (UAE) government is considering building one of the Hyperloop designs in the near future. Read More

Since announcing that this year’s annual Build Earth Live competition would focus on designing a high-speed Hyperloop station connecting Dubai and Fujairah, the concept has gone from experimental to tangible. In the past, this 48-hour competition called for designers around the world to come together as teams and create innovative structures using BIM workflows and cloud technology, but these designs were never more than models. This year, Build Earth Live organizers Asite, supported by headline sponsor Vectorworks, have partnered with Dubai Future Foundation, Dubai's Road and Transport Authority, and Hyperloop One, a company developing the world's first Hyperloop, to potentially bring the winning design to life.
