German Design Award 2015

We are not alone in thinking that 2226 has seen us embark on the road to the future. The panel of business, science and design industry experts are equally convinced: “This building goes its own way – without heating and without cooling. It is the expression of a fundamental revolutionary idea. Thanks to a sophisticated, sensor-controlled ventilation system, 2226 uses the natural energy released by its human occupants and by the equipment and lighting in operation. The architecture has been carefully designed to ensure that the energy flow functions as intended. […] Thought through to its logical conclusion and exceedingly well engineered, it is a self-confident statement in favour of sustainability.”
