Our extended family keeps growing. As part of our belief in helping designers around the world tackle projects across different industries, we’re teaming up with First Star Computer as our new United Arab Emirates (UAE) distributor for Vectorworks software. With the partnership, First Star Computer adds BIM product Vectorworks Architect to its portfolio, along with the rest of the Vectorworks product line, including Landmark, Spotlight, Designer, Fundamentals, and Vision.

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.

We’re about one month out from this year’s Build Earth Live Hyperloop Station Design competition. Even though you’re still processing the excitement from learning that your design could be brought to life, we now have another big development to share regarding the 48-hour virtual Building Information Modeling (BIM) event: Dubai Future Foundation will be hosting the event and awards ceremony.

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.
The annual Build Earth Live competitions bring together designers from across the globe to tackle a wide variety of challenges using BIM workflows and cloud technology, and this year is no different. Organized by Asite, this year’s competition is centered around linking Dubai and Abu Dhabi with a super-speed Hyperloop. In particular, it focuses on creating station terminuses within the context of the two cities in the United Arab Emirates. The 48-hour event kicks off on Monday, May 23, 2016 at noon ET and ends on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at noon ET. The wide timeframe facilitates flexible schedules among international team members in different time zones.
