The 4th Virtual Design World Cup
The 4th Student BIM&VR Design Contest on Cloud Services

-Competition for designing an advanced construction engineering-works on Cloud, making full use of BIM/CIM and VR!-

Theme 2014
"Sustainable Olympic Town in Tokyo Bay 2020"


This is an international design competition for students to compete amongst each other in designing an innovative architecture, bridge and city design using BIM/CIM &VR technologies.
Every year students compete for the top prize which is given to an outstanding work outlining a predefined theme in the aspect of design, innovative idea, and creativity. They plan and design their work based on the theme and then run a simulation. Their final model will be presented to the judges in a form of a script for evaluation.
To assist students with the production of their work, we plan to carry out workshops and seminars. We will also support the students who will make use of software from now on. Also you can communicate and collect a lot of information without having to visit the local area by participating various workshop reviews through the Web and VR forum ( 3D cloud BBS ). The script of VR data created by FORUM8's software and a "Concept poster" (A1 size (lateral) in PDF format) are required for the final submission and the judgment is performed on the basis of "VR Cloud judgment". We would like you to use FORUM8's BIM software and VR technologies by all means and consider this competition as an opportunity to create your masterpiece. We encourage students from different departments majoring in different field of studies to make a team to work on their model together to demonstrate that BIM/CIM can be used in various discipline.

 Title : The S.T.A.R.S. (Sustainable Taches and Reactivate Space)
 Team Name : KUUPL
 University Name :  Kanazawa University Country name : Japan

Overview
HELP : How to view/control VR data with VR-Cloud®
The S.T.A.R.S "Sustainable Taches and Reactivate Space" is a planning concept of Tatsumi region which includes adding new city facilities and adjusting land use, to meet the need of 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. This plan is hoped to provide easy mobility and comfortable stay for visitors from around the world and to live up to the expectation for its regeneration into an advanced environmentally friendly city. The Sustainable Taches concept will ensure the serving of the needs in accommodation transportation and entertainment for the visitors during the Olympics, and also could be used effectively by the local after the Olympics, which avoids unnecessary investment and excessive financial burden. The Reactivate Space concept tries to promise the development of the harbor region out of the image of a industrial waterfront and offers an attractive and valuable environment in the perspective of landscape design. The S.T.A.R.S. aims to achieve environmental conservation, sustainable development, to maximize the cost performance in both ecological and scenic sense in Tatsumi region. (In order to operate the script in UC-Winroad in a normal speed, the models are simplified in quite a extent in VR data.)

 University Name :  University of Transport and Communication Country name : Vietnam

Overview
HELP : How to view/control VR data with VR-Cloud®
Tokyo is striding towards 2020 Olympics, then it requires a careful preparation that leading to not only a successful Olympics but also the powerful promotion of Japanese beauty to the world. Coming to the competition, INED team would like to make the ideas about the urban planning, transport system renovation for the region Shikiba/ Tastumi, in which the Olympics will take place; in order to ensure the comfort and convenience for the visitors over the world. One of the important things that we concern is the sustainable development for the future of Tokyo Bay.The highlight of our work in transport planning is using the Modern Roundabout intersection which replaces Circle Traffic or Rotary ones which are used in the area.Besides, we propose to build new bridges so as to ensure the traffic and avoid the congestion when people flock to this place in Olympics. Coming to this competion, INED team contributes these ideas in order to solving the planning problem as well as saving the energy that is towards the sustainable development in Tokyo Bay in particular and beautiful country Japan in general. In the spirit of exchanging and learning, we hope to receive comments and criticism of the contest's Organizing Committee and everyone to improve and develop these ideas. With the desire to be able to apply ideas into practice, creat friendly architecture, the beautiful symbol for beloved country Japan.

 Title : Connected Yumenoshima, Optimised Circulation for the Olympics
 Team Name : International Architectural Think Tank Inc.
 University Name :  Robert Gordon University Country name : U.K.

Overview
HELP : How to view/control VR data with VR-Cloud®
Focusing on aiding the existing connections for streamlined operation and efficiency, through designing new infrastructure at key transportation nodes. This will allow for simple and safe pedestrian movement around dense and fast paced vehicular routes. Proposing an integrated tram service throughout the Olympic site to provide a quicker alternative to walking that reduces traffic and pollution in the immediate area. Lowering the Meniji Dori road that cuts through the Olympic site, allowing smooth connections between the venues on the new hard landscaped pedestrian routes. The proposed tram route will also benefit from the lowering of the road, to avoid delays in the flow of the low impact service.

Overview

This project proposes new Shinkiba station and a mobility system to make the situation in the case of not only "Tokyo Olympic 2020" but also "before/after Olympic" better than now. In addition, the project has three important points; the traffic line for people in this site, the mobility system having 11eco-stations, and the roof.
First, our master plan shows the traffic line for people from Shinkiba station to leisure facilities. The mobility system is arrangement along the traffic line for people.
Second, 11ecostation are in the mobility system. They are sustainable building.
Finally, the main point of the sustainable system is the roof. It's a solar system.

So we propose "Walkalizing City". This city will be ageing with people, and transform suit to them.With the end of Olympic games, this city will transform to health and welfare-oriented city that is handicapped and old people friendly. The construction & transforming are cloud data based that platform is BIM. The city has cloud server which can use Designer,constructor, administrator, and inhabitants. When the city construct,a design schemes upload server. And Inhabitants check and comment that is necessary or not. This clearness of the scheme, ensure a consensus. And when the city transform, these information will be used.

 University Name :  Ritsumeikan University Country name : Japan

Overview

√ means roof and root in this proposal. We analyzed traffic lines around the Shinkiba and design wooden frames as √. Wooden frames play two roles in during the Olympic and after. In Olympic, a large number of people cheer players or walk between the station and facilities under wooden frames. After Olympics, wooden frames are distributed around Shinkiba as a resting place for neighbors. With the BIMS, as proposing roofs for the staying and walking, we try proper placement planed by estimating flows of visitors, frame designs bring people comfortable wind and shade and integration of materials for efficient construction.
