Welcome to BAX 2018
Thursday the 1st of March - Friday the 2nd of March 2018
Copenhagen Towers, Hotel Crowne Plaza
As part of GROHE’s vision and continued effort to create sustainable and high-end solutions for living we seek and nurture partnerships with developers, architects and visionaries. In 2016 we created BAX to offer a meeting place and conceptual platform for business people, thinkers and creators sharing our vision for an awesome and sustainable future. BAX 2017 was such as great success that we decided to broaden the scope and size of the event. This year we invite leading architects from all Nordic countries and the Baltic area to share ideas for great, green and sustainable solutions for living and working.
Welcome at BAX 2018. I am looking forward to create a brighter future together with you!

Our future depends on our creativity, knowledge, and skills to create products, buildings and cities that facilitate great lives with sustainable solutions.
Luckily, we keep getting new tools, insights, and products that make this vision come closer to reality. BAX was created to boost and accelerate exactly that development.
Join us at BAX 2018 and experience how behavioural science, technology, and visionary creativity can enable the service of a sustainable future in our built environment.
Meet leading architects, thinkers, designers, scientists, and of course, a lot of colleagues in Copenhagen in March 2018.
During the two days, our speakers will teach their craft and knowledge of the sustainable. Besides specific input, there will be rich opportunity to share knowledge and expand the dialogue about the topics during the whole seminar.
The BAX18 Award Challenge
BAX is all about the future and therefor of course also about our next generation of architects, visionary creators and thinkers.
During the exchange eight talented architecture students will be working on a 24 hours challenge to win the BAX18 Award.
We are inviting architecture students from the Nordic and Baltic countries to apply for an open seat to give them an opportunity to work together and show their talent to leading architects from all Nordic countries and the Baltic area.
This year’s topic is all about how we include sustainability when building everything from homes to cities. The specific challenge for the students on this year’s topic will be revealed at the beginning of BAX18 and facilitated by two behavioural designers. The students will work in two teams and present their finished work on day two for all the invited leading experts, architects, business people, thinkers and creators who will also act as jury and thereby decide the winners of the BAX18 Award.
The BAX17 Award was won by architecture students from Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark.
We welcome the opportunity that young talents can network cross country with fellow architecture students and with experienced, leading guests and hope all parts can share visions and ambitious thinking for a brighter future.
