BILT ANZ 2019: Hackathon
The Digital Built Environment Institute is proud to announce its first hackathon on May 20 – 21 in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with the BILT ANZ 2019 conference.
So what is a Hackathon?
A hackathon is a design sprint-like event where teams of usually between 3-4 people work together based on a specific theme, with the goal to create usable software or hardware that is a functioning product by the end of the event.
So what’s the theme for this year’s Hackathon?
This year’s theme is “Generative Design in Practice”, where we’ll be looking for proposals that automate the combination of goals and constraints to reveal solutions to practical building design problems. Whether you’d like to explore building massing, steel detailing, duct routing, or any other problem in building design, we’re looking for generative outcomes that make their way into conventional design and fabrication solutions. Form a team or join one and help define the integration of generative design in AEC practice!
More details on exact venue and how to register will be published in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out and make space in the calendar for what is sure to be an epic event!
