Ryder Alliance has won the international Build New York live 2015 competition; the latest in the Build Earth Live series.
The international multidisciplinary teams were given two days to design part of the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States and the largest development in New York since Rockefeller Center. The challenging competition called for participants to reimagine the western yard site at Hudson yards.
Beating off stiff international competition, the team was named the overall winner of the online Building Information Modelling (BIM) competition which took place from 21 to 23 September. Entrants were given just 48 hours to respond to the design brief using state of the art BIM and project technologies to submit their entries using a cloud based collaboration portal provided by sponsor ASite.
