NOW, NEAR, NEXT, the digital exhibition of projects by NAXNAX Netzwerk Architekturexport members and partners 2022-27, focuses on the transformation of architecture and construction. What are the competences that position German engineering and architecture offices internationally? The consistent German values such as perfectionism, quality in construction and project management, reliable engineering services and on-time delivery are enhanced by the experimental, the courageous, the different, the creative, the unfinished and perhaps also the typically “un-German”.
Research and development play just as big a role as new materials and (digital) processes. The new German architecture is not only established but also processual, and constantly searching for what is technically, aesthetically, or socially possible, for projects, campaigns, products or research projects with a role-model function. It can have a structural-architectural dimension, a local-spatial feature, an organisational, process-related or structural-functional significance.
NOW NEAR NEXT shows the processual strive towards ever better solutions and the ongoing further development and research, as well as the future-oriented change in German construction. The exhibition also focuses on the self-image of architects in Germany. Be inspired and explore exciting projects “made by German architects”. Discover: Architectural Change, Urban Metamorphosis, Process Transformation, Social Transition and last but not least the NAX Development
