Façade: Land of Unlimited Possibilities

"Join me on a tour through the maze of the BAU 2019. Together we will discover the unlimited possibilities of the façade according to your demands. Bring all of the issues that seem to limit your potential for your façades and we will journey to discover the solutions. I will guide you to a selected group of international producers of some of the world’s finest façades. Together we will find real solutions for your most challenging endeavours. World-Architects and myself are looking forward to an exciting, successful and rewarding tour of the BAU 2019." Philip Norman Peterson

Ingredients for networked living and working

"Due to increasing digitization, the clear separation between living and working is disappearing. Urban spaces and infrastructure are used differently today and a mixture of public and private space is emerging. How can architects, designers and urban planners react or act on these formative and urgent topics? What ingredients are available to us to make our future more tasty?
Our Guided Tour will examine products that help us develop new solutions in the areas of living and working and urban space." André Schmidt

Daylight Yes! Yes! Yes!

"My guided tour is dedicated to natural light. Smart buildings “consume” more daylight then artificial light during daytime. To balance the input of light and the reflection of heat; to choose an adequate daylight system is the challenge in the cooperation of architects and lighting designers. We will visit different manufacturers of daylight systems and products. We will see practical examples and the “state of the art” in daylight." Ulrike Brandi

Buildings and processes

"The digitalization of planning- and building methods and processes is an important topic on various discussions and conferences in Germany. How are we going to plan in the future? Which impact has BIM? And how can there be a closer collaboration between planning, the products and the executing companies? We will have a look at products and digital solutions for refurbishments and new constructions, 3D printing, virtual reality and the topic “form follows material”. On our guided tour, we also want to search for ideas and inspirations, how these new methods can contribute to make buildings even more sustainable." Werner Frosch
