Welcome

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!

Neuro-architecture: Design spaces to reduce stress and improve well-being

The definitions of beauty, good design and functionality are biased, subject to cultural trends and overwhelmingly different among individuals. The power of Applied Neuroscience lies in the access to unconscious processes that people could not report otherwise. Can a room reduce the level of stress in people who inhabit it? and increase motivation? How can the outer design of a building trigger the mental associations that the project is intending to generate? Dr. Thomas Ramsøy relentlessly strives to apply insights from science to these real-world questions.

Design enabling sustainable behaviours.

What we say vs what we do is often very different. Michael will discuss and share examples of design experiences that enable behavioural change for a more sustainable future.

Delivering Places and Spaces for People, that Stand the Test of Time

Some of the biggest challenges in today’s world are social, not physical or technological. It is therefore important for us to understand how we can find solutions to these societal issues in designing the built environment, and to deliver the best outcomes for our future generations. Working as an international sustainability consultant, Anthony has learnt many lessons through previous experiences. During the talk, Anthony will share an approach which helps to deliver people centred sustainable developments from a building to city level, that touch the earth lightly and can adapt to suit changing human needs, lifestyles, uses and technological innovation. This approach employs a nested philosophy of positive change structured around the ‘five capitals model’ for sustainable development, to for example, move thinking from ‘minimising harm’ to ‘maximising wellness’. Anthony will illustrate through real world examples how we can use this approach to challenge and confirm the project brief and establish a holistic project sustainability strategy and framework as the foundation for decision making throughout the project lifecycle, from design development to operation, and deliver places and spaces for people that stand the test of time.

The Next Environmental Revolution

What we are learning about how constructed environments shape lives indicates that how we think about buildings, landscapes, and streetscapes needs to be radically revised.

Sarah Williams Goldhagen writes, lectures, and consults about architecture and landscapes, cities and urban design, infrastructure and public art — all the things that constitute the built environment. The author of the pathbreaking Welcome to Your World: How the Built Environment Shapes Our Lives (HarperCollins, 2017), she recently joined the core team of Turf Advisory as Director of Human-Centered Design. Goldhagen is a contributing editor at Art in America and Architectural Record; for many years, she was the New Republic’s architecture critic for many years, and taught for a decade at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Goldhagen has been an invited guest lecturer at numerous universities and colleges in the US and Europe, and her award-winning essays appear regularly in professional and general-interest publications.

Sustainability from vision to operations. The story about Crowne Plaza, Copenhagen Towers

The success of any project depends on an infinite number of factors, but vision, passion, and collaboration are by far the most important elements seen from our point of view. Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers is a fine example of the results that can be achieved when the developer, operator and consultants all use their individual skills in a cooperative effort to achieve a specific goal. From competition to completion, the process required a flexible team able to continually re-evaluate and rethink solutions in order to meet tight deadlines and sustainable goals for the project.

Building Ecologies

The talk will center around the nature of our cities and how the social and environmental benefits always go hand to make an impact.

How do we design cities and communities that restore our environment rather than depleting it?  This is the biggest design challenge of our generation and the question we should ask ourselves before we start designing cities and houses for the future.

At EFFEKT we see architecture as the means to create positive impact and our projects as prototypes for change.

Projects like ReGen Villages, Helsinge Gardencity and Harbourfarm are examples of projects that reboot our urban ecosystems and create new synergies through design.

The Future is Human: Trends in Workplaces
Our cities are giant Petri dishes where some buildings grow and thrive while others wane and crumble. Architects have theories about why certain buildings succeed, but we’re not really sure, we don’t really have the evidence. Today, as we gather ever increasing amounts of data about our buildings, architects and owners are set to end this grand experiment, to identify why some buildings succeed and others fail. In this talk, Daniel Davis will reveal the ways that WeWork are using data from architects, sensors, inhabitants, and contractors to help understand why certain workplaces thrive.

about
BAX

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.

AWARD

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.
