Announcing Build Sydney Live 2013 - October 28th - 30th

48 hours to make design work for Sydney!

Event Dates

This is a 48 hour virtual design collaboration starting on Monday, October 28th 2013 - Noon AEDT (UTC +11) and running through to Wednesday, October 30th 2013 - Noon AEDT (UTC +11).

What is a BUILD LIVE Event?

New technology is revolutionising the way buildings are designed and how the public can be engaged in the process. By using the power of collaborative working in the cloud and international developments in interoperability, Build Sydney Live will demonstrate the power of these new paradigms for architecture, engineering, planning and construction. Through cloud-based collaboration the event is open to worldwide participation.

The Challenge

On October 28th - Noon AEDT, a specially chosen and internationally known site in Sydney will be announced, along with a brief for a significant multi-use development. All the key information will be published in interoperable formats. Teams will be free to exploit any interoperable technology and to add updates to a public collaboration-site and all visitors will be free to comment.

Teams will be asked to develop an outline proposal by midday on the Wednesday.  The event will conclude at midday on Wednesday and will be followed by presentations to the press and a final jury will make a number of awards.


Teams from around the world are invited to register in advance. The timetable is designed to allow people to contribute within their normal working hours or outside.


Awards will be made under three categories. Prizes that include free software licences will be announced by the sponsors prior to the event.
