About BAU Congress China

The important concurrent event of CADE architectural design expo is jointly organized by Bauwelt, an authoritative international architecture magazine, and Munich expo group, one of the world's leading international exhibition institutions, and its subsidiary in China, zoomlion (Beijing) international exhibition co., LTD.

The annual BAU Congress China international building technology conference, focusing on high-quality design, planning and construction, is an exchange and exhibition platform integrating innovative architectural ideas, high-quality architectural design, building materials and building technology for the rapidly developing Chinese market.

BAU Congress China will provide a high level of international experience exchange to provide feasible solutions for China's future architecture. The conference is not only a reflection of the overall construction market -- reflecting product innovation and industry prospects, but also can provide a new way of thinking for China's construction industry, which is currently facing many problems such as building quality, energy conservation, sustainable development and urban renewal.

BAU Congress China 2020 | The theme of the lecture & the conference guests continue to update on June, please look forward to!

Topic | ‘Resilient Cities for Future Urban Development’

Cities are important carriers of human survival and development, but with the gathering of large numbers of people, they are also prone to various disasters and risks, which gradually grow to be the bottleneck of urban survival and sustainable development; On the other hand, adequate space in architecture and urban design should be reserved to accommodate flexibility to respond to changing needs in the future. In response to these challenges and demands, the concept of "resilient cities" - cities that embrace structural complexity and functional diversity, coupling with natural, economic and social sciences - has emerged. This provides new ideas and directions for responding to urban crises and ensuring urban safety, as well as capacity space and transformation conditions for future urban architecture. The "resilient city" is gradually leading the new trend of urban development.

Topic | ‘Urban Renewal and TOD Model for Future Urban Development’

In the last century, due to industrialization and the birth of the mobility city (the city on wheels), urban planning strategies and relevant research achievements have undergone significant changes. Today, workplaces and mobility are evolving again, while they also have to meet necessary requirements such as the CO2 reductions - at the back of such even greater challenges, urban planning shall adopt new approaches and create a new paradigm for the future. One of the central ideas that deserves attention is: how can existing urban space be repurposed to continue building urban centers? From this point on, urban renewal, as an important means of land function replacement and urban redevelopment mode, has become an important topic. At the same time, Transit Oriented Development - weaving a dense, compact city with an efficient combination of commercial and residential space has given rise to the TOD model, which is riding the wave of a new momentum for future cities.

Topic | ‘digital design, AI and robotics in architecture’

In addition to BIM and the digitisation of the building process, architects also work with digital tools for planning and design. We want to answer the question of how architecture can change through the use of digital tools and what will be possible with the use of AI in the planning and building process. What will robots achieve in future on the construction site and in the production of customised components? And how far-reaching are the holistic strategies of BIM today really?

Topic | ‘future of living and working’

How do we want to – and how will we – live and work in future? Workplaces and the work itself are continuously changing. New questions and challenges for the creation of residential and working spaces will arise in future, not least because of the practised strategies of mobile working, such as working from home. At the same time, demographic trends define what spaces will be in demand in future and how the existing spaces will need to change. We need flexible structures that can be dynamically adapted.
