Open Source Construction AEC Hackathon – Zurich Edition

February 2 - February 4

Up to 150 digital doers (and those who want to become one) come together for 40 hours and collaboratively build solutions that solve existing problems from their daily work. You can either work on a challenge proposed by one of our event partners or bring your own – an exciting weekend is guaranteed!

? And yes, there is something to win! Next to great new connections and valuable insights for everyone, the best projects will be awarded based on the judgement of the Hackathon jury.

To make your experience not only inspiring and entertaining but also a bit educational, we also organised really cool talks:

? The Public Talks on Friday will investigate the impact of open source in the construction industry. In his keynote, Roger Meier will discuss how Siemens is implementing open source as one of the key pillars of its digital transformation, followed by concrete examples of how companies from the AEC industry like vyzn or luucy, are interacting with open source solutions like compas, Speckle or QGis.

? The Tech Talks on Saturday will give you detailed insights into current tech trends on a variety of topics, delivered by experts like Michael Drobnik (Herzog&deMeuron), Antonio González Viegas (ThatOpenCompany), Alar Jost (beyondBIM), Yashar Moradi (Bimondis), Thomas Glaettli (Bauen Digital Schweiz), Paul Curschellas (Burckhardt), as well as representatives from DFAB ETH Zurich and Implenia.

? The presentations and award ceremony on Sunday will be a great platform to learn about the work done on the weekend and to connect with all participants.

Everyone is invited to attend the talks, also people who do not participate in the Hackathon.
