Creativity Unleashed at the AEC Design Hackathon


At the 2017 Design in the Age of Experience AEC Hackathon, we brought 13 CATIA R&D experts from Dassault Systèmes together with 17 architectural design professionals from the world’s most progressive firms, including:

  • Zaha Hadid Architects
  • SHoP
  • HKS
  • Kengo Kuma Associates
  • Morphosis
  • Zahner
  • CO Architects
  • NJIT
  • CadMakers Virtual Construction

The objective of the hackathon was to create innovative building designs in under 24 hours with CATIA’s latest generative modeling applications on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Champion users from the 3DEXPERIENCE TRIBE formed 6 teams and spent 24 straight hours creating 60+ lifelike renderings to be considered for fabrication.

With the help of 83 pizzas, 312 espressos, and 3 coordinators, the hackathon participants virtually built 243 products comprised of 979 parts using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

The hackathon culminated with a presentation and a virtual reality experience in the Design in the Age of Experience playground.
