Dear WAM open und ACFx - fans,
in sunlight, freezing temperatures and with beautiful, snow-covered slopes, this year's WAM open ended. The WAM open took their course in the evening of February 1st, when the first group of participants as well as all the speakers of the conference were greeted in the Wildererhütte in Ischgl with "Glühwein" and a nice dinner after an inspring night walk through snow-clad mountains. On 2nd February, the elite of architecture, design and communication met for the first time on the ACFx, the Conference of the Future of Business Architecture, where the trends and developments and the impact of digital and media world were discussed. This conference provided the platform for interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and technology. Whereas the WAM open participants could register for the parallel slalom and giant slalom competitions already on February 2nd, on February 3rd and 4th the World Championships finally took their course.

The event was accompanied throughout with the camera. The WAM open movie can be seen soon on YouTube.

The winner of the WAM open and the overall results can be found in the results list at the following link!

We want to thank all participants and look forward to seeing you again next year - to the GAM open 2013!

ACFx-Conference & WAM open 2012

On Febrary 2nd, Andreas Pfetsch, executive director of ap35, opened the first architecture conference "Architecture Corporate Foresight" (ACFx) conference. Under the motto "Minds of Tomorrow", 15 internationally renowned speakers ventured to take a look into the future of Architecture. In the first panel called "Trend Research", Sebastian Raßmann (TrendOne), Tobias Mayer (Airbus) and trend forecaster Gert van de Keuken (Trend Union) dealt, not surprisingly, with the phenomenon of trends and asked, what can we say about the future when considering results from trend research and/or trend forecasting. In the second panel, "Interaction, Design & Media", Harald Katzenschläger (Dream Academia), Steve Rogers (Google UX EMEA), Sam Kronick (University of California) and Robert Miles Kemp (Variate Labs, Los Angeles) took as a starting point the fact that our globalized world has become one big interactive meeting place. Under the heading "Architecture Thinking", which announced the third panel, Wolfgang Kessling (Transsolar), Astrid Piber (UNStudio), Andreas Huber (Lindner KG) and Chris Bosse (Lava Architects) dealt with the questions of how architecture conceives of tomorrow's building strategies. In the last panel, "Urban Design & Megacities", the world's growing urbanization was the central point of attention. Here, Assaf Biderman (SENSEable City Lab), Sebastian Finckh (Jürgen Mayer H. Architekten), Alexander Rieck (Fraunhofer Institute für Industrial Engineering) and Jakob Lange (BIG Architects) commented on this global development with recent examples from the studios and/or institutes they work for. After this long day of inspiring presentations and discussions, the first day of the WAM open 2012 was brought to an end with a 3 course menu in the "Alpenhaus" on a mountain top called Idalp, 2.300 meters high above Ischgl. For a digestive, most dinner guests chose to participate in a night tobogganing tour: at -20 °C, a large group of exhilarated participants found their way down the mountain, a jolly ride that took them more than 20 minutes!

Skiing fun at -24 °C
Dressed in layers and layers of thick clothing to withstand the cold, architects both male and female partook in the parallel slalom and giant slalom races, had lots of fun and could also boast of some really good results. On both days, the skiers were supplied with "Glühwein", punch and hot soup on the racing track. Both days culminated in award ceremonies with dinner, during which the winners of various disciplines were honoured in the Silvretta Center, located in the middle of Ischgl. After the award ceremonies, whoever felt like it could visit one of Ischgl's most iconic clubs, the "Pacha", and have a good time during the "Racer's Night" and/or "Winner's Night". Taken as a whole, the World Architects' Masters 2012 have been visited by more than 200 people.
