Sustainable Architecture in Vorarlberg
Energy Concepts and Construction Systems
Vorarlberg’s successful combination of a simple, yet sophisticated regional building style with sustainable construction methods has culminated in a model for architecture worldwide. This book presents particularly successful projects of various typologies from recent years and portrays their development from design idea to built detail. The documented structures by Cukrowicz Nachbaur, Christian Lenz, Oskar Leo Kaufmann + Albert Rüf, Hermann Kaufmann, Marte Marte, Martin Rauch, Dietrich Untertrifaller, Baumschlager Eberle, and others focus on innovative energy strategies and advanced construction techniques. All plan and detail drawings were specifically prepared for this book, allowing for easy comparison of the projects. The book is available in both English and German language editions.
