    The winners of the Student League «Architecture, Design, Construction and Housing and Utilities» Engineering Championship «CASE-IN» have been announced

    On May 29 2024, the National University of Science and Technology MISIS hosted the Final of the Architecture, Design, Construction and Housing and Utilities section of the Student League of the International Engineering Championship «CASE-IN».

    «CASE-IN» is an international system of competitions for solving engineering cases. This year, Metropolis acted as a strategic partner of the Championship, consolidating the successful results of the debut of the last season.

    In 2023, at the initiative of Metropolis, the Special League «Architecture, Design and Construction» was organized for the first time within the Championship. In the new season of the championship, «Metropolis» expanded its boundaries: «Architecture, Design, Construction and Housing and Utilities» was developed as an independent section of the Student League of the Championship and was supported by the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation.

    This season of the competition was attended by 85 teams from 25 universities in 19 cities of Russia and the Republic of Belarus. The participants designed a universal multifunctional complex that can be built in any populated area in Russia with minimal changes. In a multifunctional complex with an area of no more than 10,000 sq. m., it was necessary to provide various public spaces: offices, a food court, a cafe, a fitness center, a SPA, a children's club, a bank, etc. During designing, the students considered the principles of lean manufacturing, applied modern architectural and construction design technologies and used artificial intelligence services.
