Light+Building in Frankfurt - 2012
The Message in the Façade – M. Hank Haeusler from the University of New South Wales in Australia demonstrated in the guided tours organized by World-Architects.com that façades can be more than beautiful building envelopes nowadays. His tour begann with a journey into the history of the media façade in which participants encountered referential examples. Afterwards, selected manufacturers who have the right product responses concerning the topic of the media façade were visited.
One day later, on April 18, the topic was enlarged upon: In the Media Façade Summit 2012 took place in the context of the Luminale, leading creatives and experts discussed the fields of application and designs of media façades.

plenty of inspiration for upcoming projects – Thanks M. Hank Haeusler and World Architects. It was an impressive tour through the global LED manufactures, with insights in interesting projects and plenty of inspiration for upcoming projects.

learning and asking – Thanks to Mr Hank Haeusler. It was much easier for me to learn from his experience and meet the led manufacturers from different countries. I was so interested in this topic that I approfit the tour asking questions to the professionals. He explained us in which cases one could use some Chinese products, everything is related to the concept and the price. Thanks for this opportunity.

In der Summe war die Tour sehr lohnenswert – Der Tourführer war kompetent und kommunikativ | Die Einführung und Begrüßung waren gut und wichtig | Es fehlte eine kurze Übersicht, was wir uns während der Tour anschauen – so etwas wie ein Roter Faden, der die ausgewählten Stationen vorab erläuterte, beziehungsweise begründete | Der Abschluss bei traxon/Zumtobel war gut gewählt.
