    On July 16th, GIGA Material Challenge - Beijing was successfully held at the Yang Gallery in Beijing's 798 Art District.


    After 4 hours of intense competition, designers from ‘Wozhai’ won first prize and walked away with a bunch of Apple Watches. Wozhai is a young design company, but their designers should not be underestimated. Designers from InkMason finished in second place with only a difference of 1.5 points. They were able to each take home a Parrot MiniDrone. BAM's designers and Info50 designers tied for third place, so we needed a tie breaker. BAM's team was able to grab victory and won third place, which means a Broad Air Purifier for vehicles to each of BAM's members. Other design companies including ARUP, Robarts, CADRI, GreenSpace also sent teams and performed very well.

    The GIGA Material Challenge centers around the premise that architects and designers learn more about building materials and finishes when they experience them first-hand.  By pairing the design community with participating suppliers, the GIGA Material Challenge offers a day of intensive learning and detailed demonstrations covering the technical aspects of different products and building materials. There isn't a more interactive, materials-focused competition that is this much fun anywhere!
