Getting under the skin of designing eco-buildings
An informative travelling exhibition, by Behnisch Architekten + Transsolar Climate Engineering guaranteed to cool you with facts and figures about the human body, and showing the tip of the iceberg of human being’s conquest to conquer the environment.
The German exhibition is a must see for climate change advocates, people in positions to affect urban planning (plotting buildings to maximize wind draft for the benefit of the WHOLE city area), architectural and art students alike. The exhibition features completed and on-going projects highlighting “(eco) function affects form”, and offers a stark contrast to Singapore’s Green buildings, and ubiquitous shopping malls.
