The next lecture, by Düsseldorf-based Christoph Ingenhoven, is tonight, Monday, May 19th. Ingenhoven Architects’ design for the new zero-energy Main Station in Stuttgart, to be built from 2010 – 2016, was awarded the Europe Holcim Award Silver 2005 and the Global Holcim Award Gold 2006.
Goethe-Institut New York is holding a two-year lecture series called “What Is Green Architecture?” which started in February, to transform its landmark Beaux-Arts townhouse on Fifth Avenue “into a showcase of sustainable design.”
“Our dream is an answer to this question that can actually be built,” notes Dr. Stephan Wackwitz, the institute’s program director.
Andres Lepik, curator of the Architecture & Design Department of the Museum of Modern Art, will follow Ingenhoven.
The series continues June 16, with Matthias Sauerbruch, who will speak two days later at the International Congress on Sustainable Building in Stuttgart.
