Filmed in Berlin at the Aedes Architecture Forum, Feireiss and Feireiss discuss the book, which is based on the Zumtobel Group Award for Sustainability and Humanity in the Built Environment and features around forty projects selected for their architectural quality and their contribution to a sustainable future.


Also featured is architect Christoph Ingenhoven, founder of Ingenhoven Architects, one of the world’s leading architects in sustainable and ecological design. He speaks about his experiences working in the US and how they have rapidly developed intelligent large-scale professional projects in recent years despite their late start. Ingenhoven also explains his ideas and approach to designing the Lufthansa Aviation Center (above and below) in Dusseldorf, where he aimed to create a healthy working environment, reduce the noise level from the outside environment and create a naturally ventilated structure.

In the interview, Friedrich von Borries of the Berlin-based architecture office raumtaktik (also the General Commissioner of the German Pavilion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale) talks about the balance between ecological and social issues that need to be met.


In an interview with Lucas Young from Sauerbruch Hutton Architects, the architect speaks about marrying intelligent energy-saving design and technology with beautiful spatial design and architecture. The German Federal Environmental Agency (above) that they designed in Dessau, Germany is a successful example.
