Eligibility All

The 2017 edition of the BIM Competition offers candidates the opportunity to reflect on the center city of the community of Saint-Prix. Candidates will need to design digital model informed with several residential and commercial buildings (refer to the "Architectural" section below) which will be integrated into a larger project for the creation of a new central area for the city.
The complete project should accommodate:
- 150 residence
- businesses facilities
- parking areas
- public spaces for pedestrian use
- a small public square
The architectural part is to be designed in an informed digital model. It will include residential and commercial buildings. The constructed area is approximately 15,000 m2 ground surface area (12,000m2 residences and associated spaces + 3,000 m2 businesses) on the site destined for the project (2.3 Ha).
The urban and landscaping part involves reflecting on the organization of a new Saint-Prix town center (facilities, public spaces, various traffic routes) which will have to be visible both in terms of general perspectives and a ground plan. The project in its totality should improve the urban functions of the neighborhood.
