Already the spectacular backdrop opens up the program of this year's architectureworld congress: At the Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord on 8th and 9th of November facades, technology and sustainable construction will be on show. On an exhibition space of 6,000 square meters, suppliers present themselves with their product innovations.
With their specialist lectures renowned speakers from all over the world complete the program of the trade fair – one of them is gmp founding partner Volkwin Marg. His life work is characterized by large architectural projects. Particularly his international stadia projects have lead to great reputation. In his lecture on stage two, the architect himself will be reflecting an oeuvre that also impressively illustrates his personal philosophy, his theoretical approach and his understanding of architecture and urban planning.
There is also a premiere on this year’s architectureworld: For the first time, the Milestone-Award will pay respect to the outstanding architecture of Moshe Safdie. Thus, the award recognizes representatives who have developed and shaped a new style in architecture and structural design.
At the same time, the congress is a further training event and is recognized by the architects 'and engineers' chambers.
