URBAN MINING

PANEL

Urban Mining: Are today's buildings tomorrow's raw materials?

Today's buildings are tomorrow's raw materials. » Buildings have freely available digital files with their data over their entire life cycle. Through digitization and big data, the sum of all data forms the digital open-source building cadastre. Information about a property is available throughout its entire life cycle.

MODULAR BUILDING

PANEL

The modular principle for a sustainable construction industry.

Technology trends act as accelerators - they promote circular and industrialized, modular construction. Building = raw material depot with recyclable modules. − Configure individually, can be experienced virtually during planning, can be ordered online − Increased energy efficiency – at best climate-positive, at least reduced CO2 emissions

16:30h - 18:00h

SMART MOBILITY STRATEGIES

EXPERT
SERIES

New mobility has an undeniable impact on our urban planning.

We will investigate how new mobility formats affect our planning on urban and architectural scale as well as the implications on social behaviour, climate change and the ecological footprint our logistic buildings leave. We will discuss innovative solutions that are catered to new mobility locally in Berlin-Brandenburg and globally.

16:30h - 18:00h

BAUWENDE NOW

EXPERT
SERIES

In the wake of climate change, one of today’s key challenges is to rebuild our economy towards a circular model.

On-demand solution and service-based models are getting more and more popular in the industry and help shape our environment towards a circular economy. We will investigate new value chains and business models for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, sustainable building technology, their implications on society and environment, and elaborate on strategies for positive ecologic and social footprints.
