To inspire the next generation of architects, engineers, urban planners and construction managers, the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Midwest, Inc.

A select group of leading German companies from the field of architecture and urban planning will present their latest technology and projects incorporating innovative, energy efficient solutions. The seminar will also include a presentation by a recent Alumni of GACCoM’s Transatlantic Program-Young Technology Leaders (TAP-YTL): Sustainable Architecture & Urban Planning. These young leaders from the field of Sustainable Architecture and Urban Planning will report on their experience of energy efficient technology and services during their TAP-YTL program in Germany and how it has influenced them and their work in the United States.
