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 | ‘urban development, Recent Projects’
Beside the traditional urban planning, we are facing challenges in mega structures. All over the world, we are looking for answers in case of CO2 and energy consumption, sustainability in an urban context and the climate change. Today some urban structures are close to the collapse. The overheating, the transportation and the overloaded public transport systems challenges us to find new concepts and solutions.
Topic | ‘urban development- TOD‘
In the last century, urban planning and its results have twice changed dramatically due to changes in work (industrialization, the Athens Charter) and mobility (Auto City). Today we face even greater challenges as both work and mobility shift again, this time simultaneously. Moreover, requirements for the necessary reduction of CO2 must also be met. These conditions call for new approaches to urban planning and the creation of models for the future. There are two central ideas, facing this challenges. One concept here is TOD – transit-oriented development – resulting in a dense, compact city where business and residential space lie in close proximity to each other. The big challenge here is how to repurpose existing city spaces and continue building up urban centers.
Topic | ‘resilient architecture’
Architecture and urban design has to be resilient and, at the same time, flexible to react to future demands. Especially hospitals and healthcare buildings need new designs for the future – and not just because of the previous coronavirus crisis. Demographic change means that we will be looking after an increased number of older people in future. At the same time, urban expansion pushes a need for larger structures to accommodate growth.
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.
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?
