Open BIM

The Center for Rhythmic Gymnastics project, by Moscow-based CPU Pride, won the “BIM 2016” Russian competition in the “BIM project: sports facilities” category. The project clearly demonstrates the successful use of the OPEN BIM approach in its design. “During the initial stage, we created a preliminary concept rather quickly, consisting of several completely different solutions, such as extraordinary forms, or a more geometric appearance maintaining a clear rhythm of the façade. We were able to develop the first 3D model in less than a month,” says chief architect of the Pride company, Elena Myznikova. The project is an excellent case study for the OPEN BIM approach.
