„Educating buildings” – learning sustainability through displayed design

Piotr Kuczia


Technical development, legal requirements, economic impulses and public awareness lead to increased demand for sustainable buildings. Constantly developing increasingly sophisticated technologies become more and more incomprehensible and unfamiliar to occupants and visitors. Exposing sustainable solutions attractively and presenting corresponding information about them directly in the buildings, will increase the knowledge of sustainability. As a result, acceptance will rise, occupants are inspired to proper use and encouraged to future sustainable constructions. Based on analyses of built examples and planning an innovative model building, new concepts and project recommendations for exhibiting sustainable solutions and techniques have been developed. They are compiled in a bilingual compendium “Educating Buildings”.
