Given the realization that supplies of available raw materials are finite, it is becoming increasingly evident that only innovative solutions - and this is equally true for architecture and urban planning - can achieve urgently needed reductions in energy and resource.
This joint exhibition by Behnisch Architekten and Transsolar ClimateEngineering, together with its accompanying catalogue, features pioneering developements in these areas. Designed with a broad international public in mind, it will hopefully be through-provoking while raising awareness of these pressing issues. The exhibition is a cooperation with the ifa -Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen relations and the forum of architecture Aedes. The curator Frank Ockert illustrates that a sensitive and responsible approach to the built environment is not only a matter for experts, but for each individual person.
