Building Energy Exchange
Kay Künzel is a German architect known for ecological and
sustainable Passive House buildings. He founded his firm "raum für architektur"
in 2000 and has since that realized over 200 highly energy efficient buildings.
Kay will give an overview of Passive House and the different possibilities of
energy efficiency strategies, featuring the presentation of
multi-story-buildings in wooden construction. One project presented will
be a 6 story wooden Passive House student-apartment in Bonn, Germany -
completely ecological – and a "smart-home". Attendees can expect an
energetic presentation by an architect who is passionate about sustainable and
energy efficient building – from the basics of Passive House to the cutting
edge of ecological construction.
This event is organized by New York Passive House. For more information including registration, visit their event page here.
