The park itself is already attracted awards. The innovative technology behind the Enchanted Storybook Castle has won the International Architecture award from the American Institute of Architects. Walt Disney Imagineering was recognized for its successful implementation of Building Information Modeling, the process of generating and managing digital representations of structures and facilities.
“As construction of the Shanghai Disney Resort continues on its theme park and associated facility development, we’re constantly defining and redefining themed entertainment with innovation, and we do that not just in the technology behind our attractions, but also in the way we design and develop them,” said Howard Brown, Senior Vice President and Project Development Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Shanghai. “The Enchanted Storybook Castle is designed with retail, dining, operations and theatrical spaces, and a ride system running through it which marries traditional architectural detailing with modern building technology. It would be hard to imagine designing and building such a complex structure without having one integrated, central, smart model like Building Information Modeling.”
