In 2002 the Federal Chamber of German Architects (Bundesarchitektenkammer - BAK) founded the Network for Architecture Exchange NAX (Netzwerk Architekturexport - NAX) for promoting the activities of German and foreign architects working abroad and for supporting internationally active developers and investors in their search for suitable architects and urban planners.
NAX is part of the lobbying activities of the Federal Chamber of German Architects on a European and international level. The aim of NAX is to make the international exchange of planning services easier and to promote the professional mobility of architects and town planners.
The Network for Architecture Exchange NAX will participate with two events at this year’s EXPO REAL in Munich:

Furthermore we will present the latest NAX exhibition „Contemporary Architecture. Made in Germany“ which will start touring China.
The Network for Architecture Exchange (NAX) presents the exhibition CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE. MADE IN GERMANY at the Beijing Design Week. The annual Beijing Design Week is organized by the city of Beijing and the three national ministries of Education, Culture, Science and Technology. From September 26th to October 7th, more than 2,000 designers, institutions and experts come together from around the world. Last year, more than 5 million visitors and more than 100 media representatives came to visit.
Take a look at more than 80 international projects that deal with climate change, sustainability, cities and technology and are displayed at a former worker houtong building.
In the current 13th Chinese government the topic „Green Transformation of the Chinese Economy“ gets into focus. For this reason the Network for Architecture Exchange (NAX), an initiative of the Federal Chamber of German Architects (Bundesarchitektenkammer - BAK), will host a congress on „Innovative Urban and Environmental Planning for Megacities in China“. The congress is funded by the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BUMB) and will be held on October 13th 2016, 9:30 to 16:30PM at the Tsinghua University Architectural College in Beijing.
