BauZ! 2021, the 18th Vienna Congress for Sustainable Building, is accompanying the industry’s fresh start in 2021. Subsequent to the Advantage Austria B2B matchmaking event “Future of Building”, on two days, forward-looking solutions and concepts will be presented and discussions with a domestic and international audience will be held..

We are calling for contributions: your contribution can either be the presentation of a construction project or a (completed) piece of research. Digitization, BIM, and prefabrication may play a role in the contribution, yet the main focus should be on one of the following topics :

1. Livable neighborhoods

What is a neighborhood? It is the area that you can cover on foot, in which you will – in the corresponding range of movement – hopefully find a stop of a means of transport running frequently. Such an area is home to several thousands up to several ten thousands of inhabitants and is referred to as a “Grätzl” in Vienna. [...] 

Three topics

  1. Free space, greenery, a place based on rules, a place rife with possibilities
  2. Traffic in shared space
  3. Living and working, ground floors, neighborhood development, temporary use

2. Plus-energy neighborhoods

Climate-conscious neighborhoods are plus-energy neighborhoods. By 2025, the EU intends to have implemented at minimum 100 plus-energy neighborhoods (Positive Energy Districts). [...]

Three topics

  1. CO2-neutral neighborhoods
  2. Energy-flexible neighborhoods
  3. Business models, tariff models, ownership

3. Low-tech principles and choice of materials for new construction and refurbishment in the neighborhood

Climate-conscious, CO2-neutral and energy-flexible buildings are constructed and operated according to low-tech principles. This means that straightforward solutions are sought after. [...] 

Three topics:

  1. Low-tech principles: architecture, constructions, choice of materials
  2. Refurbishments involving several buildings: how?
  3. In operation: low-tech and user comfort. Is my building self-regulating?

COVID 19: We hope to make BauZ! 21 a real-presence event but prepare at the same time for an online event.
