On 180,000 mq of exhibition space, BAU will be presenting a display of architecture, materials and systems for commercial and residential construction and interior design, for both new-build and R&M projects. This next edition of the show, which takes place in Munich from January 19 to 24, 2015, will again be filling up all the available halls at the exhibition center. Here around 2,000 exhibitors from approximately 40 countries will be showcasing a comprehensive range of materials and technologies for planning and construction. In particular architects - many coming from all over the world - regard this event is an unmissable source of information and inspiration.
The forums program at BAU is targeted principally at architects and engineers. In the three forums at the event (in Halls C2, A4 and B0) there are different themes each day, oriented towards the key themes of the show. Just some of the topics covered are: new concepts for utilizing existing buildings, strategies to cope with climate change and involving building users in the design process. But the range extends across a very broad spectrum.
The special shows at BAU are also directed primarily at planners and engineers. BAU is working together in these shows with partners from research and development. In the special show entitled "ResearchWorkShop", the partner is the Fraunhofer Building Innovation Alliance. Its 17 institutes will be presenting current developments for the building envelope and product and system solutions for the city of the future.
