BRICO 2020: ViDe – The Steel Bridge Virtual Design Competition deadline has been moved again. The new due date for the submissions is 31.12.2020 at 23.59!

 

The reason for the current postponement is that some contestants have reached out to us and asked for extra time for designing the bridge. We have taken your concerns in account and extended the deadline.

 

The closing ceremony has been moved accordingly. The new date is 14.01.2021.

 

Send the finished work to info@brico.ee

Time to polish up your bridge knowledge, because BRICO 2021 is coming!

We are delighted to announce that BRICO 2021 will be taking place during 10-14th May in Tallinn, Estonia. Although BRICO 2020 had to be cancelled we strongly believe that all of us have been tempered by the experience and are hopefully able to better plan for the conditions of the coming spring. On our part, the organizing team is doing everything in our power to make the coming BRICO a legendary event that will be talked about for years!

The rules for BRICO 2021 are identical to those of BRICO 2020. as to give a deserved chance for last year’s competitors to field-test their designs, some of which have already been manufactured. As before, optimisation and out-of-the-box thinking will be richly rewarded! So gather a team, design a bridge, and you’re halfway to Tallinn!

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us via info@brico.ee. Also check out our home page www.brico.ee for the rules and freshest information.

P.S. All participants of the final competition shall receive a certificate with 6 ECTS credits from Tallinn University of Technology.

We are sad to announce that we are canceling BRICO 2020. Due to the lingering effects of the coronavirus most of the teams would not have been able to make it to Tallinn in September.

All the teams that were going to participate in September are qualified to participate in the finals of BRICO 2021 in May 2021. As such, the design rules for BRICO 2021 will be the same as for BRICO 2020.

We want to thank everybody that supports and follows BRICO for their understanding! We want to give special thanks to all the would-be participants who worked with the organizing team until the last moment to make BRICO 2020 happen.

We hope to see you all in Tallinn this coming spring! Meanwhile stay safe and healthy!

PS: BRICO 2020: ViDe is still taking place and you are very welcome to participate (more info at brico.ee/vide).Poster where there is written "BRICO 2020 is canceled"

 


We are thoroughly thrilled to bring you the first ever BRICO 2020: ViDe – The Virtual Bridge Design Competition!

BRICO: ViDe is purely virtual – no real life problems such as lack of funding, problems with manufacturing or even global pandemic can’t stop anyone from taking part. It also gives a spectacular  opportunity to compose exotic on-the-edge designs that wouldn’t be practical to produce. Let your fantasy fly free!

Like BRICO itself, ViDe has something for both architecture and engineering students – the best bridge model and best bridge poster will be awarded! We also have a special prize for a team of newcomers.

So, all that’s left to do, is for you to find a teammate! Or you can take the journey alone!  Send the model and poster to info@brico.ee before 24.08.2020 12.00 CET and compete in a friendly atmosphere with students all over the world!

*BRICO: ViDe has no participation fee


It’s our pleasure to announce that the new dates have been decided and BRICO 2020 will be taking place on 31.08.2020 – 04.09.2020!

As BRICO shifted four months to the future from the original dates, we are also reopening the registration. If for some reason you couldn’t make it for the deadlines in January, here is your chance!
Just fill the registration form here: registration link and submit both the model and the joint designs before 31.05.2020 23.59 ECT. More information and the rules can be found, as always, on our website http://brico.ee

Dearest friends and followers of BRICO

 

In order to protect the public health in these current conditions, BRICO will be postponed.

The new dates are currently under deliberation, but the competition will most likely be taking place at the end of August or the beginning of September. The dates will be announced as soon as possible.

 

Until then, we wish you and your loved ones strong health. Also, a gentle reminder that working on a theoretical bridge model is an excellent way to suspend that home-quarantine-boredom.

 

With love

BRICO team
