BASF brings multiple-award-winning magazine “Corpus – Constructing Tomorrow” onto the Web

  • Digital stories from the world of construction
  • Magazine launched on company website

BASF has launched CORPUS, the magazine devoted to architecture, infrastructure and high-performance construction materials, in a new version for the Internet. As of now, all content is freely available via the company website Over the past two years, six issues of the title have been published in an app format for tablets and smartphones, receiving two prestigious awards during this period.

Informative and exciting new format
In its format as a Web magazine, CORPUS will again be regularly supplying its readership with exciting and inspirational stories from the world of construction. In its four regular sections Architecture, Infrastructure, Urban Environment and Ideas & Solutions, it covers a broad range of subjects, extending from extra-small, intelligent home solutions, coastal protection and vertical gardens to new materials and research findings. CORPUS adopts a global viewpoint at all times. “We are a company with global activities, and our customers come from almost all countries of the world. Most of us are faced with the same questions when it comes to shaping the future. And CORPUS aims to find answers to these questions,” explains Jesper Bjerregaard, Director Marketing Construction, Performance Materials at BASF. “On top of this, we also want to show how BASF high-performance products can be part of new solutions or even make them possible in the first place.” CORPUS talks with experts and celebrated architects, follows construction and infrastructure projects, and presents ideas, visions and new, sustainable approaches. The magazine’s interviews, reports and features open a window onto the future of construction.
