BAU 2015 / January 19 to 24 / DETAIL FORUM - Building the Future Monday, January 19, 2015
Urban Sustainability Life in the future will take place in cities. Global population trends prove this. Green City, Smart City, Megacity, Eco-City, City of Tomorrow - there are currently a great many concepts for the city of the future. Urbanization seems to be the only workable solution to the problem of a growing global population. This makes the system and structure of a city a field of research for all disciplines. Urban planning and architecture must provide the basis for the functioning social systems of the future.

Globalization versus regionalism / Beyond globalization Globalization currently finds itself confronted with strengthened regionalism. Booming cities are leading to shrinking regions. As cities grows, the importance of rural areas is also increasing. Just as the metropolises are redefining themselves, a restructuring of suburban areas is also taking place. In the context of these glocalization shifts, experts speak of the compression of intermediate cities and even of possible new cities being established.

Lasting Building Quality The treatment of existing buildings against the background of demographic change and population decline is increasing in importance. Renovation saves both energy and costs in the long term. Maintenance increases the comfort of users. Redensification harnesses urban potential and the upgrading of existing properties enhances the entire urban environment.

Ruben Lang, o5 Architekten bda raab hafke lang, Frankfurt am Main
Climatic Strategies Climate change will become perceptible in the next 30 years. Scenarios predict significantly more summer days with higher temperatures and milder winters. This will be felt particularly strongly in urban areas. Various research projects are already focusing more strongly on the preparations for climatic change. The development of climate adaptation programs and the testing of model regions is already in full swing, and future construction is arming itself for climate change.
- 2:30 pm: Buildings and Climate Change: The Plus Energy House

Digital architecture production Digital design and manufacturing processes enable the serial manufacture of customized components for the entire construction process and building life-cycle. Computer-based implementation, from design through site logistics and building operation to recycling, holds new potential for prefabricated components. The design work spans the gamut from robotics to system assembly. Technology transfer and new material technologies from other industries are opening up new perspectives for the construction industry.
- 2:30 pm: Computational Design and Fabrication
Prof. Achim Menges, ICD Institute for Computational Design, University of Stuttgart

Marc Hoppermann, UNStudio, Amsterdam
- 4:00 pm: Digital Building Site
Prof. Dr.-Ing. André Borrmann, Computational Modeling and Simulation, Technical University of Munich
Network Building / Open Source Architecture The changing professions of architects and urban planners, new priorities and changing working methods mean that new communication and networking formats are required. Architecture, urban planning and interior design are increasingly seeking interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral and holistic solutions, with professional expertise becoming increasingly relevant. Active members of the public too will get the chance to participate in the architectural discourse.
- 2:30 pm: Social Architecture
Anh-Linh Ngo, Arch+, Berlin
- 2:50 pm: Top Down versus Bottom up? New Planning Paradigms
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Philipp Misselwitz, International Urbanism and Design - Habitat Unit, Technical University of Berlin, network partner Urban Catalyst Studio Berlin
