67 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 1: Buildings Category 1: Buildings 1 Short description │National Music Centre of Canada The National Music Centre of Canada is a 135,000-square foot cultural institution dedicated to the music of Canada and located in Calgary’s historic East Village. The design itself is free-form, using 9 towers to form the structures body. Additionally, the structure is built around the historical and condemned King Edward Hotel, which will be refurbished and reopened as part of the project. As a result of the project’s scale and intricate architecture, Scia Engineer was utilized for its 3D modelling capability, advanced analysis and, most importantly, the software’s ability to leverage the architect’s model into analysis, allowing for streamlined collaboration between the architect and structural engineer.
