Architecture generates atmosphere – that has always been the case. But the framework conditions have changed. Globalisation, digitalisation, finiteness of resources, affordability, densification, growing together of urban and rural areas, work-life balance, responsibility for nature and future generations are only a few of the factors that shape the new approach to architecture.
It is no longer just a matter of creating atmospheric spaces. Rather, it is important to capture the constantly changing influencing factors and to transfer them into a new, responsible architecture – at social, cultural, economic, ecological, and all other levels. A new awareness must emerge among architects, interior designers, and planners in order to advance visions and yet respond thoughtfully to the needs and necessities of users and their environment. A debate is arising about new tendencies in architecture and the effects on multifaceted fields of work of a hitherto classical occupational profile.
And no matter from which point of view you look at it, the focus is on change and shift, atmosphere and space, development and innovation, the focus is on ATMYSPHERE as a symbol and leitmotif of Framing Trends , as well as "Shift" as the overriding motto for the four days of Talks and Tours at DOMOTEX.
In terms of content, the Talks & Tours supporting programme of the special show Framing Trends is divided into four lecture days with overarching topics.
