Chris Precht, who founded architecture studio Precht with his wife Fei Precht last year, discussed his work with Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
Precht has explored low-impact building technologies and ways of making buildings more self-sufficient. Projects by the studio include a proposal for a timber housing tower that incorporates a vertical farm and an off-grid micro-home made of timber.
The architect co-founded Beijing-based architecture studio Penda in 2013, where he developed a concept for a modular bamboo hotel that can be extended.
The interview is part of our VDF Screentime series, a series of live interviews which has featured trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, Tokyo-based studio Klein Dytham Architecture, New York architecture practice SO-IL, The World Around curator Beatrice Galilee and British-Israeli architect Ron Arad.
