International Summit – Architecture Corporate Foresight Conference
On 2nd February 2012 the first ever Architecture Corporate Foresight conference (short: ACFx), is scheduled to take place, with high-profile contributors, in the mountains above Ischgl.
Members of the elite fields of architecture, communication and design are set to meet at this ACFx conference, where trends and developments, and the impact of the digital world and the world of media will be discussed. This conference will provide a platform for the interdisciplinary exchange of technology and ideas, and can hence be classed as unique. Renowned speakers have
been contacted, many of whom have already confirmed their participation. These include: Bjarke Ingels, founder of the BIG Group; Lidweij Edelkoort, world-famous trend researcher, Assaf Biderman, Associated Director of the SENSEable City Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Jürgen Mayer H., Jürgen Mayer H. architects; Dr. Alexander Rieck from the Fraunhofer Institute IAO; Steve Rogers, EMEA Director at Google, and Sebastian Raßmann from Trendone.

In a galaxy far, far, away……NO! The future is NOW!
Our world is fast-paced. Much – including architecture – is changing with breath-taking speed, and rarely do we anticipate in which direction trends and developments will turn. This first ACFx conference offers an opportunity to profit from the knowledge and work of experts and eminent authorities, to talk with them and look to the future together. A wide range of subjects will be covered
by this conference: from megacities and trend research to start-up ideas and future home, life and work trends. Furthermore, the conference aims to show how the internet and the digital world can be put to optimal use and integrated into strategies. To date, these channels have rarely been made use of in architecture, even though they open up a whole realm of possibilities.
There will be 4 panel discussions held, with the following topics:
- Urban environment : Big, bigger, megacity!
- Trend research: Minds of tomorrow
- Start ups: Creative, sexy, intelligent
- Temporary Corporate Space: future working & living
The conference invites participants to discover more about architectural trends and urban developments, and about new ideas and the potential of the digital world. To find out more about the individual speakers, the programme and event partners or to register,
