BAU Congress China is now three days long
Participants listening to a lecture at BAU Congress China
For the first time ever, the event will relocate to the exhibition halls of the CNCC and the congress will be integrated into the fair, which has also increased in size. The objective is to strengthen networking between the congress and the adjoining exhibition. As in the past, the main themes—i.e. urban strategies, project development and implementation, and smart building technology—will be adapted to ensure that they reflect the characteristics of the Chinese market.
The concept of developing system solutions to the problems facing Chinese cities is one that BAU Congress China has been pursuing since it was first held in 2014. As in the past, main themes were selected for 2016 that—together with the conference program and the adjoining exhibition— demonstrate how to take the specific characteristics of the Chinese market into account during planning and construction. The objective of the event is to focus even more on distinct projects and present potential solutions based on actual properties. Thanks to the expertise of the renowned architecture magazine “Bauwelt,” some very prominent lecturers and speakers have agreed to participate this year. The following have already accepted:
ingenhoven architects Düsseldorf
Dr.-Ing. Hartwig M. Künzel
Department Hygrothermics, Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics
School of Architecture Tsinghua University
MIT Department of Architecture, Cambridge, USA
Besides the congress and the adjoining exhibition, the ATI Forum is also being held again. This proven presentation platform focuses on building solutions that can be linked to the concepts and ideas of the congress with regard to specific applications. As in 2015, ift Rosenheim has agreed to serve as the official partner to the ATI Forum and will make a special presentation on the topic of windows, doors and facades. Extending the congress by an extra day and moving it to the exhibition halls will improve the reputation of BAU Congress China. Once again, several proven partners of BAU in Munich will participate in the project in China. They include Bauverlag, Fraunhofer Allianz Bau, the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), Hörmann, ift Rosenheim and the Archi Europe Group. BAU Congress China’s local partners include Econet China and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT). Interested visitors can register online at www.bauchina.com.
