Stadtbild und Energie

Back Download

“Stadtbild und Energie” (Cityscape and Energy) is a project by the German Institute of Civic Art, Dortmund. Its main objective is to find ways to optimise the energy balance of urban buildings without disrupting valued cityscapes. Similar to the authors’ attempts to connect structural-physical considerations with architectural and aesthetic concepts, the book is separated – in terms of form and content – into two parts that can be read independently. The blue theory section contains essays, theses and guidelines, while the red practice part illustrates buzzwords with examples from real projects.
