Under the auspices of the Federal Chamber of German Architects (BAKBAK Bundesarchitektenkammer) Network for Architecture Exchange (NAXNAX Netzwerk Architekturexport), 35 of Germany’s leading architectural practices have tackled the challenges of modern global life. They developed potential solutions that they then put into practice within the context of real, existing construction projects. The result is a touring exhibition that, over the next two years, aims to set new milestones in global architectural discourse. NAX is a growing association of German planners who have achieved international success. We not only facilitate contact between colleagues based in Germany and abroad, but also bring together planners, developers and investors around the world.
Here at NAX, we see ourselves as being an active ambassador for German building culture. As part of this mission, we are regularely present at international trade fairs and events.
Our exhibition has already been presented at the following locations:
- CIDAL Paris (the German Center of the German Embassy in Paris)
- Beijing Design Week in Dashilar, Peking/China
- Tsinghua Universität in Peking/China
- German-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce in Oslo
- Tianjin International Design Week in Tianjin/China
- German Embassy in Beijing/China

Our exhibition was accompanied in Paris and in China by a television team of Deutsche Welle:
“German architects tackle global issues”
Did you know that part of China’s National Library and a St. Petersburg hospital were built by German architects? Architecture firms in Germany are expanding in developing markets by solving modern urban problems.
The coverage from Paris can be found here in english and in german.
What does German architecture accomplish in China?
Class instead of mass, quality instead of quantity, German architects represent these aspects in China. Kultur.21 talks with German and Chinese architects about the highly competitive construction market and shows successful examples.
Take a look at the coverage from the Deutsche Welle in China here.
We are especially pleased that the exhibition has been nominated for the German Design Award 2016.
