    Buildings are responsible for about 50 % of the countrywide energy consumption. The EU-carbon roadmap is envisioning a 90% carbon reduction of the building sector until 2050. This requires a re-clad- ding of the entire building stock within the European Union – other countries will certainly follow.

    Combined with insulation, fabrics can potentially play a significant role in this re-cladding task (fabric composites / high tech fabrics like used for outdoor clothing). Fab- ric re-cladding systems could potentially be inexpensive, provide a relatively fast installation and has an “adjustable” esthetics.

    Welcome and short introduction to UPenn Studio Berlin: Airport Tegel – What´s next?

    Matthias Rudolph (Transsolar) | Climate Informed Design

    Matthias will present the role of climate engineering in the building process by exhibiting real world examples of the built environment, demonstrating how the recognition of outdoor as well as indoor climates can effectively inform design decisions. Understanding the interdependence of the built and natural environment, the impact of design decisions on qualities such as daylight, natural ventilation, air quality, thermal comfort as well as on environmental impact is essential.
