THE JUDGING CRITERIA

We will be looking for: collaboration between multiple participants and use of IFC and open BIM; challenges solved with Tekla; perhaps a multi-material aspect or complexity of geometry; and most importantly the cool factor - uniqueness of the project and creativity in the project execution.

All projects entered are opened up to review by the public, who then vote for their favorite.
