The winning architectural designs of the BIM 2016 contest, organized by Polantis, were commended by the judges at the award ceremony on April 7. The winning projects include openings onto the city of Bobigny and the banks of the Ourcq Canal, a play with volumes and the use of environmental innovations. And they were all created using BIM (Building Information Modeling). The CSTB participated in evaluating the digital models.
And the winners are...
Organized by Polantis with the city of Bobigny, and sponsored in particular by the CSTB, the BIM 2016 contest awarded prizes to three teams of architects. Each team proposed an innovative design for a business incubator, located (virtually) in the city of Bobigny, near the Ourcq Canal (Seine-Saint-Denis).
Here are the winners:
- 1st prize: U-Farm project, designed by Kévin Bailly and Minh Nguyen. Special mention for the landscaped integration of the buildings into the city, and the environmentally-friendly principle of vegetable gardens on the rooftops.
- 2nd prize: Eco Bobigny project, designed by Ricardo Pagani, Serena Cardoni, Veronica Veschi and Niccolò Vergara Caffarelli. With its strong architectural identity, this building has a facade that is completely oriented towards the sun, which helps it generate energy.
- 3rd prize: MBK Lab project, designed by Dany Ang and Jean-Frédérick Loko.
An original design opening out onto the Ourcq Canal, structured by plays on levels and slanting lines.
“The winning projects were noted as much for their architectural modernity as for the quality of their digital models,” says Eric Lebègue, Partnership Manager at the CSTB's Information Technologies Department. “With the seven other judges, we studied the design concepts through the digital models shared via eveBIM. We viewed the projects in 3D and navigated through them to assess their integration into their environment, their architectural quality and the use of products in the building. As a BIM expert, I also evaluated the organization of the information in the digital models. I checked to see if the different spaces were well presented (layout on the site, building, floor, room, product) and if each construction component was associated with the right set of properties.”
