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 third issue of this year's NAX Report focuses on Australia and New Zealand. In English are available an interview with Australian Institute of Architects CEO Julia Cambage on how Aussie architects are dealing with climate change and the corona crisis, as well as a report by a German architect on his work life in Sydney.
The Architects' Council of Europe ACE has recently launched a new web platform dedicated to the architectural profession. The purpose is to provide a single entry point through which users can search, access and compare a multitude of statistical information regarding European Architects, the architectural market and architectural practices taken from the ACE Sector Studies since 2010.
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)
The second NAX Report in 2020 is again under the sign of the Corona crisis: Find out about important tips, support measures and FAQ's about the effects for planners at NAX Aktuell. In addition, our special topic Value in Architecture includes articles about projects with social value, the cities of tomorrow, needs-oriented work environments and more!
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.
