Innovation Lab

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCES INSTEAD OF TALKS: The interactive Swissbau Innovation Lab will provide hands-on experience of the future of the construction industry in a special show. Taking the theme of "Digital Construction", leading manufacturers and researchers will present their latest products and studies in concentrated form in the Innovation Village. In the associated iRoom, visitors will be able to help shape a realistic construction project together with virtual colleagues (avatars). And augmented reality technologies will be tested in the process. Let's take on the future together. Because those who understand today will be shaping tomorrow.

Bathroom Trends

A dwelling is no longer simply a roof over one’s head. It has become a key expression of the quality of life. The formerly rigid concepts for living space and ground plans are slowly dissolving and new focal points are emerging. Bathrooms too are revealing a new side to themselves today. The functional washrooms have been developing into living spaces. The “Bathroom Trends” section gives you the opportunity to discover the latest developments from the industry leaders in a unique setting and gain inspiration for your next building project.

Kitchen Trends

In contemporary architecture, the kitchen has long since shaken off its image as a galley separated off from everywhere else and has become an important element of the home in its own right. This development is now advancing further in numerous practical details relating to function, equipment and design. In the “Kitchen Trends” section, our exhibitors provide you with an overview of the latest solutions and trends. They cater for all kinds of requirements – depending on your precise tastes.

The interior finishing section has traditionally been one of the highlights at Swissbau. The “Raumwelten” exhibition concept, which was launched in 2016, has been further developed and is full of surprises with new and special displays. The stand areas are surrounded by experimental zones as well as food and relaxation zones. Those who are part of the “Raumwelten” benefit from a first-mover effect – or, as Michel Hueter, curator of Design Prize Switzerland, puts it “participating in Swissbau 2016 gave designers and companies the opportunity to address extended target groups in a broad context on matters of architecture, building, living, engineering and product design.”

Swissbau Focus

Swissbau Focus is a meeting and networking format that Swissbau devises jointly with trade associations, organisations, universities and the media and that has been running since 2012. Its long-term focus is on the themes of energy, education, densification and the lifecycle of buildings. Specialised skills are disseminated in some sixty or so events. At the same time, networking is promoted between themes, exhibitors and participants. The Swissbau Focus partners have a live presence in Hall 1.0 South in lounges and with information points.

Collaboration – All together or everyone for themselves?
MORE THAN FORTY INDUSTRY ORGANISATIONS WITH ONE SHARED GOAL: always keeping right up-to-date. At some sixty organised events under the overall motto of “Collaboration – All working together or everyone for themselves?”, we meet up in Swissbau Focus to discuss the current opportunities and challenges facing the construction sector, the new technologies and business models, revolutionary methods and processes and the interaction between human beings in matters of planning, building and use. In short: to discuss shaping the future.
