FENESTRATION BAU unveils seminar line-up

FENESTRATION BAU China will offer an overview of the latest technologies for Asia’s rapidly growing construction industry. Key topics for the leading construction markets in Asia are energy efficiency and sustainable construction. These are reflected at the exhibition by the addition of new segments as well as in the supporting program and at the BAU Congress China.

From October 31 to November 3, 2018, national and international companies such as dormakaba, Hörmann, Hoppe, JUNG, Kin Long, LG Hausys and Schüco will be presenting innovations and solutions in the sectors building materials, construction IT, facades, windows, building automation, building technologies and doors in eight halls of the New China International Exhibition Center (NCIEC) in Beijing.

Four more segments will be added to the upcoming FENESTRATION BAU China: Prefabrication Materials & Green Building, Building Chemistry, Construction Tools and Energy Efficient & Smart Solutions/BIM. Another new platform is “Future Building Networking—Made in Germany”. With the forums “Smart Building made in Germany” and “Prefabrication Materials and Green Building made in Germany”, the event reacts to developments and new requirements of the Asian construction industry and positions itself as a driving force for the Far East.

Practice-oriented solutions tailored to the Chinese construction market

BAU Congress China (BCC) complements the exhibition portfolio of FENESTRATION BAU China. Over three days, it offers practice-oriented solutions for the Chinese construction industry. Under the central theme “The Future of Building for China”, the BCC is divided into three days with five focus topics:

  • “The Big Picture—Tomorrow’s Urban Design, Exemplary Projects”
  • “Smart Buildings—Simple Cities”
  • “Young Independent Architects—Human Scale Architecture”
  • “Future Building Technology: Energy, Process, and Building”
  • “Cutting Edge Super Projects for China”

Seminar speakers confirmed include Liu Wan from Tsinghua University. He will provide insights into the “Big Picture” for China. Using his own branches in Beijing and Taiyuan as an example, Wolfgang Frey (Frey Architekten Group/WFP Architekten, Berlin) will showcase how sustainable architecture can be designed.

Under the thematic block “Young Independent Architects” (moderated by Zhang Li, TeamMinus), Sophia Bai (TeamMinus, Beijing) will provide insights into ideas of the young architectural scene in China. “Cutting Edge Super Projects” will once again be a popular topic this year. Among other exciting projects, the multi-award-winning “Marina One” in Singapore will be presented by Ingenhoven Architects, Düsseldorf.

BAU Congress China is organised by the architecture magazine Bauwelt.
