The Constructivists

Held every two years, BAU returns from 14-19 January covering more ground, both in size – occupying 200,000-square-metres of exhibition space for the first time – and in scope. The leading fair for the international-building industry, its 2019 edition is ready with a programme that responds to the contemporary demands of architects and building trade professionals. Besides special shows and expert talks, there are new halls dedicated to innovative construction technology and digital solutions, plus an inaugural ‘Light/Smart Building’ section, combining lighting concepts with building automation.

The Forums at BAU 2019
Text: BAU
BAU´s reputation is founded not only on the presentations put on by the exhibitors – all those well-known names and brands that fill the exhibition halls. Of almost equal importance now are the high-quality lectures given in the forums at BAU. Experts from all over the world, among them many prominent planners and architects, come here to give answers to the big questions about the future of building.
