This forward-looking topic includes sun shading systems, daylighting, rooflights / domes, artificial lighting concepts, building automation / control and elevators. According to Mr.Mirko Arend, Exhibition Group Director, BAU, ‘The integration of light into the BAU is a logical consequence, because the topic of lighting concept plays an increasingly important role in the overall concept of a building. In our new exhibition area, we combine the subject of light with the subject of building automation. It is about light control, lighting control, lighting concepts, daylight versus artificial light. This new segment will also be a link to already existing areas such as facade systems, windows and doors or power engineering. ‘
