International Architecture Congress

Contrasts – New architecture with glas

International Architecture Conference 2014

The interplay between light and shadow forms a central element in the architecture and design of rooms. Here, there is really only one material with which openness can be created: Glass. The rapid development of technology creates numerous new possibilities – whether for light, warmth, energy or safety.

The International Architecture Congress presents the future-oriented application of glass in architecture. Through current designs, internationally renowned firms from the areas of architecture and interior design present excellent projects in superior aesthetic and functional quality.

Great materials for great architecture

The Exhibition Materia
Great architects, both past and present, have continuously pushed the boundaries in respect to structure, space, techniques and materials.

From Shigiru Ban with his work with recycled cardboard and wooden innovations, to Norman Foster with his impressive high-tech steel tension structures. We are now facing an exciting new era, in which digital manufacturing and parametric design can be executed in a diversity of materials.
