Call for Participation: Creative Business Game ‘Start-Up Architecture’


The BauHow5 alliance invites you together with international architectural practices HPP, AECOM Design&Consulting and AllesWirdGut to join our first ‘creative business game’ to start-up a new era of architectural businesses. The call for participation is extended until September 7, 2018.

The built environment and construction industry is one of the largest industries in the world. As asset-heavy and labor-intense industry it has not embraced innovation potentials by new technologies so far. Businesses from other fields are challenging the existing models and entering the market.

Can architects transform their potentials into new competitive advantages in the future? What processes need to be changed? How will a new architectural office look like and integrate technologies? How will you disrupt the built environment and industry in times of augmented realities and artificial intelligence?

How would you start-up architecture?

Challenge these questions in a 2-day interdiciplinary business game with students from architecture, design, management and informatics. Get inspired by insights and real-life tasks from successful international practices and upcoming stars as awarded KEWAZO and flissade. Apply now!
We are looking for applications from Master’s students in Architecture, Industrial Design, Management, and Informatics Engineering!

The workshop is part of the 3-year Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership “Strengthening Architecture and the Built Environment Research” (SABRE), a collaboration of the BauHow5 alliance, the partnership of five leading European research intense universities in architecture and the built environment (UCL, TU Delft, Chalmers, ETHZ, TU Munich). SABRE is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

Apply for the "Creative Business Game: Start-Up Architecture" at until September 7, 2018 by submitting a short motivation letter or idea, why you should participate and a short CV.
