Active Buildings – Innovation for Architecture in Motion
Location: Aedes Architecture Forum, Christinenstraße 18-19, 10119 Berlin
The futuristic "active energy building", an apartment building in Vaduz, is the prototype of a new urban, decentralized power generation system that represents a trend-setting model for energy generation and distribution. It is the main focus of the exhibition, which details the extensive research work by the Austrian architects Anton Falkeis & Cornelia Falkeis-Senn with their results on numerous advances in terms of material, construction and network design for the development of active buildings. By means of further projects, the office presents its innovative strategies that help to tackle the major societal challenges, such as climate change, energy and resource scarcity. Photographs, texts, drawings and architectural models also give insight into other cultural buildings and infrastructure.
Ongoing research focusing on decentralized urban energy production
