Think you’re good at building in Minecraft? How confident are you, enough to pit your skills against others? The Chartered Institute of Building would like to see how good you are by replicating a famous building.
International Construction Management Day started on March 9th and since there are only 100 spaces available, it may be a little late to apply, but you could always set a personal target. There’s a chance to win a iPad Mini 16GB, which isn’t too shabby.
Saleem Akram director at the CIOB said;
“There are more than 30 million people playing Minecraft worldwide. Many of them showcasing amazing digital construction skills by building highly detailed representations of some of the world’s iconic structures. Even more are creating new and exciting projects from their own imagination. The game has become so popular even town planners are using it to show their designs for public comment.”
The projects to choose from are:-
- The Shard
- CCTV Beijing
- The Petronas Towers
- Sydney Opera House
- The Houses of Parliament (Highest level of difficulty)
