SuperGreen: Net-Zero Energy Infrastructure & Sustainable Architecture Innovation
See, eat, and learn with renowned German architect Christoph Ingenhoven, a leading innovator in sustainable design and net-zero energy infrastructure. This lunch event (11am to 2pm) will be held in Los Angeles on June 17th. Register now to reserve a spot for you and your team.
Sustainable and ecologically oriented architecture is a negotiated agreement. The use of regenerative energies and resources like geothermal energy and rainwater, as well as intensive integration of daylight and natural ventilation of buildings, all play important roles in Ingenhoven’s design concepts. With a minimum consumption of energy and resources, his projects are also set to aim for the highest degree of utilization comfort.
