Network Architecture Exchange NAX

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.


Video: „Urban Renewal – the Role and Potential of Architecture“

What does it mean to work as a German architect in China? What opportunities and expectations as well as cultural differences come to meet? How does collaboration in international teams work? In this film, four NAX-Members, which provide German know-how worldwide - gmp Architekten von gerkan, marg und partner, HPP Architekten, ISA Internationales Stadtbauatelier and schneider+schumacher - share their experiences in China and show what "Urban Renewal" means to them today.
