15 Jul AEC Magazine: Crowdsourcing BIM project to bring London landmark back to life
HP, in partnership with RAMSA, CASE, Nvidia (nvidia.com) and Autodesk, has launched a crowdsourced BIM project to model and render the famous Sir John Soane’s Bank of England, which was destroyed in the 1920s.
The two-phased virtual BIM reconstruction of Sir John Soane’s Bank of England will be a global BIM crowdsourcing effort, followed by a rendering contest. Contributors will receive worldwide recognition and a chance at winning over $20,000 in awards for their efforts.
The team at Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) explored the Soane Museum’s archive of original drawings to compile reference kits for two of the Bank’s facades and two of its most admired rooms.
