International Building Design Competition 2023

Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Institute of Technical Education are hosting the International Building Design Competition (IBDC) 2023, themed: Narratives for a Resilient Future.

The IBDC 2023 is an open-themed design competition inviting students from tertiary institutions around the world to design a new narrative for their built environment using technologies like Computational BIM, Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality platforms.

Participants are challenged to address the areas of Integrated Planning and Design (IPD), Sustainable Urban System (SUS) and Advanced Manufacturing & Assembly (AMA), to come up with innovative, sustainable and in-demand proposal that is holistic and resilient.

The competition also aims to promote a better understanding and appreciation of technologies like Computational Building Information Modelling (BIM) as students are required to apply visual programming and/or programming setup with BIM in their proposal.

Forming teams of 3 to 8 members, participants are free to select a project site of their choice in their country and decide on their preferred building typology for the competition. Multi-disciplinary teams comprising members from a mix of disciplines are encouraged.
