NAVIGATING THE TRIPLE TRANSITION

SHAPING THE FUTURE TO FACE DIGITAL, GREEN, AND SOCIAL TRANSITIONS. 

The AEC Hackathon @ BLOXHUB 2024 will be devoted to solving the some of the BIG challenges of our generation: How can the AEC industries help us solve climate and biodiversity issues while ensuring a fair and just transition – through tech?

On 1 – 3 March, 100+ engineers, architects, computer scientists, BIM-developers, cool nerds, tech experts, design thinkers, anthropologists and other great minds will rethink traditional patterns and hack their way into solutions that are relevant for the green and social transition.

Challenges will include ‘deep dives’ within:

  • How to design CO2 positive buildings
  • How to measure dynamic nature-based relationships in cities
  • How to design inclusive cities through citizen engagement

… all through tech.

The AEC Hackathon 2024 already have interesting challenges to join. Delve into these examples from our partners and be ready to partner up with peers:

  • LCA data collection and quality assurance (proposed by Molio & Green Building Council Denmark)
  • Enabling a more sustainable construction site: optimizing resource management (proposed by Contech Lab)
  • Mapping nature and biodiversity in cities (proposed by Contech Lab)
  • Apply AI/ML to increased quality in decision making (proposed by RIB Software)
  • Investigate technologies that can improve the structure of an AEC project (proposed by NIRAS)
  • OpenDetail: An open-source database that gathers best practices and real-world construction examples with biogenic materials (proposed by Henning Larsen)
  • ESG Reporting for RealEstate – a v0.9 to v0.9.1 hack challenge moving the dial on the triple bottom line (proposed by PropTech Denmark)
  • Data model for sustainable urban development (proposed by Urban Insights Data Lab)

What is AEC Hackathon?

AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) Hackathon is an organization that, since its origin in 2013, has held events in numerous locations; e.g. Berlin, Shanghai, and Paris. It was created to give those designing, building, and maintaining our built environment the opportunity to collaborate with cutting-edge technologies and its developers and designers. Over the course of three days, teams compete against each other while trying to find solutions for the problems they face in their everyday work.

It has quickly become a community of innovators that includes all elements of the built environment, not just AEC.
