It is unusual for us as climate engineers to show our work, because our work is rather difficult to visualize and to communicate. In spite of this, we have been invited to present our mastery of Klimaengineering at a number of exhibitions and have been delighted to accept at every opportunity.
Behnisch Architekten + Transsolar
Aedes Architecture Forum and the Institute for Foreign Relations (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) invited Behnisch Architekten to design an exhibition to showcase their architecture work. However, Behnisch was interested in the theme climate responsive design and asked if we would like to collaborate. The exhibition not only intensified our relation to the Behnisch office and Frank Ockert (a designer specializing in architecture and communication graphics), but also forced us to reflect on our typical project approach. From that point on, we began to focus more on the human experience within the built environment instead of focusing only on its technical systems. Ultimately, a building which manages to delight its occupants is one that is treasured by all.
green architecture for the future
In 2009, we were approached by Louisiana Museum curators to take part in the exhibition “Frontiers of Architecture II: green architecture for the future”. The museum engaged Frank Ockert to curate our exhibit, which was presenting our climate engineering approach.
Transsolar + Tetsuo Kondo
We were invited by Kazuyo Sejima, curator of the Architecture Biennale 2010, to participate in the architecture exhibition. We succeeded in creating a cloud, indoors, as a unique visualization of climate engineering. This technical feat was also the first aesthetic climate engineering project we did.
