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.
During the COVID-19 crisis the Federal Chamber of German Architects offers resources and advice to help practices and architects.
Detailed economic, financial and legal advice for practices in Germany you will find here.
(German language only)
This guide - composed by NAX and the other members of the ACE-Workgroup “Internationalisation & New Business Models (IBM)”- aims to assist architects to develop international business opportunities and secure long-term success by adopting a strategic approach to their ventures into new markets. Although produced by the Architects' Council of Europe ACE in Europe, this guide could be equally valuable to all architects who wish to internationalise their practices, wherever they are located. Some of the support services listed in this guide are specific to the EU, but the principles are universal.
