This was our DELTA Lab “Digital Collaboration” in Linz
08. October 2020
The event “DELTA LAB – Digital Collaboration” took place on September 30th at the Ars Electronica Center – also called “Museum of the Future” – in Linz. The extraordinary location in the AEC, Deep Space 8K, impressed the participants above all with its oversized projections. A 16x9m wall let the participants dive even deeper into the presentations.
We prepared a unique program for the event: The digital twin of St. Stephen’s Cathedral gave the visitors a foretaste of it right from the start. A subsequent digitalization of St. Stephen’s Cathedral using high-resolution laser images gave them an exciting insight into areas that are normally not accessible and at the same time showed what the “digital twin” of a building can do. In DELTA projects, we can also let customers walk through their future building – giving them a true-to-life picture and all the relevant data for their project at an early planning stage.
Sabrina Schubert gave the first presentation on BIM and explained the advantages and oppertunities for the client using current and international construction projects as examples. Arnold Koller then impressed the participants with his presentation on Industry 4.0 and the digital requirements of the future. He explained why Digital Data Environments, in this case, “Datenpool” developed by DELTA itself, is an important factor of success as a digital communication and documentation platform in construction projects. The third presentation was held by Stefan Stockinger from Pirado Verde on the subject of “Sustainability in the age of digitalization” and showed the participants what green buildings of the future could look like and which successful examples – such as the new wooden building for BOKU with DELTA as general planner in a joint venture with SWAP architects – already exist.
Finally, and as a highlight of the evening, everyone – equipped with 3D glasses – virtually “drove” down Austria’s most famous downhill run, the “Streif” in Kitzbühel. After so much action, of course there was a refreshment in form of a flying buffet as well as sufficient opportunity for networking and a relaxed end of the evening in the winter garden of the restaurant Cubus.
