We are pleased to announce the winner of the REskin challenge is "Adaptive Skin" by M_RV. The challenge asked professsionals and students in the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) community to cleverly reskin a decaying urban building in New York City through exploiting features found within Autodesk Revit.
"Adaptive Skin hits all the requirements and comes out with I think the most attractive option, as well as the one that pushes Revit’s conceptual design tools the furthest. M_RV is doing some very nice and a bit sneaky things with repeaters and complex components. The presentation doesn’t even show this little experiment, which is buried in the rvt file, which a a sweet little investigation of the benefits and limitations of manual placement versus automated patterning. The design elegantly resolves the need to clear the sidewalk for circulation and modulates between imposing a new look on the building as well as allowing the old to be maintained and readable." - Zach Kron
