Beijing Olympic TV Transmission Tower Designed with ArchiCAD

Budapest, August 8, 2008 – The Olympic TV Transmission Tower that will broadcast the signal of the Olympic Games to the world was designed by local Chinese architects in just three months to meet the final Olympic preparation rush.

Located near China’s National Stadium, better known as the “Bird’s Nest,” the transmission tower (4299 m2) stretches 132 meters high and is the tallest building in Beijing Olympic Park, making it one of three main landmark buildings in the Park.

After fierce competition for the project in 2007, the design work was won by Cui Kai, Fu Xiaoming, Kang Kai, Zhang Junying, architects of the Cui Kai Studio at the China Design Institute.

The project started in May of 2007 and was completed in July of the same year – a record three months time. The construction on the project was completed in July 2008 just before the start of the Olympic Games.

According to the architects, ArchiCAD’s integrated model based workflow was vital to the completion of the entire design and documentation work of the 4299 m2 (46,000 sq ft) building in such a short period of time.
