Meeting Point Guided Tours


Outlook Lounge Hall 4.2 Foyer

The net is everywhere



Digitalisation, which has long arrived in our society, now also gathers pace in the building industry. Where systems and trades all went their own way in the past, what actually belongs together now comes together. A building is a complex cosmos, which has to function so that people feel comfortable inside. This year’s Light + Building trade fair wants to show what is already feasible in respect of Smart Building – and how the cogs of a building system can mesh. World-Architects will be present once again and provide an ideal overview with the Guided Tours and their experts from practice. Thomas Geuder
