Конкурс ищет идеи по созданию в Канаде доступного жилья по стоимости 100 канадских долларов за квадратный фут – с использованием 3D-печати, сборных конструкций, робототехники и/или других новых технологий. Состязание пройдет в несколько этапов и завершится реализацией лучшего проекта – многоквартирный дом будет построен в Южном Онтарио с выплатой соответствующих отчислений авторам.
With 7 decades of experience building, financing, and operating complex long term infrastructure projects in one of Canada’s most influential cities, Toronto, Horizon is driven to pioneer the next innovation in sustainable real estate.
This open innovation challenge was created with the goal of achieving our mission to build affordable housing using new construction technologies and processes.
Construction is an industry that’s made relatively little progress in how it organizes its business, still using century-old technologies and processes. We believe digital capabilities present opportunities to make qualitative leaps for the industry. There have been piecemeal efforts made, but no significant revolution in overall project scale practice.
This is where we want your help!
Horizon is looking for passionate individuals around the world who have innovative solutions that can help us bring our vision to life. We want your ideas & will partner with you to realize them. We will provide land, technical expertise, and funding to actualize and build the chosen concepts. At the end of our journey, our goal is to have several completed buildings that are operational, and places people can call home.
The Marco Polo 100 Digital Build Challenge is open to everyone
We believe the best ideas can come from anywhere.
No matter whether you are a startup, entrepreneur, inventor, industry professional, educator, or a student around the globe from fields including but definitely not limited to 3D- printing, prefabrication technologies, robotics, architecture, engineering, manufacturing, and construction.
Our expert mentors & partner associations will support you during the whole process to help you advance in all aspects that you do not have expertise in yet.
