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 | ‘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.

Markus Lauber
KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten/General Manager China
Intelligent urbanisation – Concepts of future-oriented city modules
Whether it is districts in a built context, places with a strong identity or the densification and expansion of urban structures with campus characteristics and sustainable mixed uses: Markus Lauber, General Manager China, uses current projects and designs to showcase examples of future-oriented city modules.

Steven Smit
Director MVRDV Asia
Future Proof Hybrid Urbanism
We live in radical times. MVRDV has always pioneered radical urban scenarios to match change and in particular fast change in the uniquely challenging Asian context.
The climate crisis places humanity, and therefore urbanism, at a critical pivot point in history. As we re-position our relationship with the earth’s biosphere, a new type of urbanism will evolve. MVRDV anticipates that the coming decade requires new, even pivotal, urban solutions: with urbanization speeding up, increased technical, virtual and ecological agency will work in tandem with shifts in human behavior. New types of sky and ground-scrapers are required to create new 3D networks of holistic spatial experiences.
Vanke 3D City in Shenzhen is an example of MVRDV Vertical Hybrid Urbanism that has grown out of the MVRDV ‘Three dimensional City’ and ‘Vertical Village’ research projects. The objective is to create maximum vibrancy and livability in the Future City.
Can the smart city also be the green city? With the proposal for a futuristic Tencent Solar Jungle Campus in Shenzhen MVRDV explored how a fusion between the natural and the synthetic allowed employees to feel simultaneously enveloped by technology and ecology.

Liu Yichun
Atelier Deshaus
Sensitive Urbanity
The speech will mainly focus on the architectural practices of Atelier Deshaus during the past two decades, and how they reflect the shift in China’s, especially Shanghai's urban growth from that of suburban sprawl to city-centre regeneration through architectural design.

Topic | ‘Urban Development, Transit-Oriented Development and Resilient Architecture‘

Urban planning and its results have changed dramatically twice in the 20th century due to changes in work (industrialisation, Athens Charter) and mobility (car-friendly 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 be met. These conditions call for new approaches to urban planning and the creation of models for the future. Two central ideas face these challenges. One concept here is TOD – transit-oriented development – resulting in a dense, compact city, where business and residential spaces lie in close proximity to each other. The question here is how to repurpose existing city spaces and continue building up urban centres.

Toward Future Water Urbanism
Grand Projects touch both: city and landscape. They are rooted in global challenges related to climate change and pressure on natural resources. Grand projects are about design thinking in a context of collaboration to rebuild the resistant cities by holistic approach.

Future of architecture and urban transition
If architecture used to be about addressing the static needs of life with dynamic interpretations, today it is about the changing dynamics of life itself. Urban ergonomics focuses on the interaction between the human body and space, advocating design with/for the human body, assisted by the availability of technological advancements.

Topic |  ‘Resilient Architecture, Healthcare Buildings and their Infrastructure’

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.

Hao Wang
Untitled Architects
Construction for a New Water Town
Taking Wang Hao's architectural project practices in recent years as a clue, the lecture will discuss the local expression of the traditional construction in the south of the Yangtze River in China. Facing modernization processes of the traditional architectural vocabulary, it will summarize construction methods in that area to explore a new architectural paradigm that has a "passage" relationship with nature.

Hieronimus Nickl/Jian Yang
Nickl & Partner Architekten AG
Current and future challenges in healthcare architecture
Due to current developments, hospitals all over the world are being put to the test more than ever. Which structural transformations does COVID-19 require – both in the short and the long term? It is nevessary to rethink the planning of hospitals.

Chris Bosse(Video)
Asia Pacific Director, LAVA
Digital Cathedrals and the city of the future - man, technology and nature: synergy in the urban environment
How do geometries in nature create both efficiency and beauty? What can architecture learn from nature in the areas of structure, material and building skin? How are efficient, intelligent and beautiful membranes for interiors and exteriors a solution of the future? Chris Bosse will present case studies including a building wrapped in bubble membranes, a tower transformed with a new skin, and a city shaded by smart umbrellas. LAVA projects combine digital workflow, nature’s structural principles and the latest digital fabrication technologies with the aim of achieving "more with less". More architecture with less material, energy, time and cost).

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.

A Sustainable Office Tower - let’s do it now and let’s do it better
Thomas Fritzsche has been working in China for more than 15 years and realised many office buildings and office parks. In the project ‘A Sustainable Office Tower’, tfa recently developed a new typology of office high-rise building that reflects the contemporary trends of workspace design and creates a healthy and attractive interior that inspires creativity and cooperation. The project ‘A Sustainable Office Tower’ shows what should be done and what could be done.

Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)
This project showcases the new working environment of the AIIB headquarters as a multinational bank with members from more than 100 nations. The shifting building volumes of the office areas meander one above the other resulting in a surprisingly complex open interior landscape that reflects natural light deep into the floor areas and allows for surprisingly intimate functional and visual relationships within the vast building volume.

The Songyang Story: Rural revitalization through architecture as acupunctural strategy
“Architectural Acupuncture” is a holistic approach to the social and economic revitalization of rural China. The primary program is to serve the village and villagers, to restore their rural heritage as well as opening up for tourism and stimulating the rural economical development. With a minimal intervention approach, multi-functional public programs are introduced to different villages and rural region tailored to the complexity of respective heritage and context. Hence, context, program, and their potential relationship will cultivate architecture into a multidimensional expression and generate new experiment and exploration for users.

Yung Ho Chang
Atelier Feichang Jianzhu
Building Future
If the virtual realm is threatening to overtake the physical realm, what is the future for architecture? Perhaps, a new mission of architecture today is to remind us the tangibility of the tangible world. While architecture is enhancing our earthly experience of time and space, it is more likely to transform into pure forms itself. These arguments will be supported by a series of projects by Yung Ho Chang’s practice at FCJZ.

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?

Satoshi Ohashi

How does digital design change the design of architecture in real scale?

“Complexity” Design
Nowadays, the desires of being unique has a large impact on our design approach. How to guarantee HPP quality serving in the same time new formal desires? BIM, Hype or Chance from the view of architects?
