      Ingenhoven Architekten, Düsseldorf

      Lecture Title: A Green Future

      Location: 112 Wurster Hall, UC Berkeley

      Bio

      Christoph Ingenhoven is one of the world's leading architects in designing
      sustainable and ecological architecture. The work is guided by the
      principles set out by such bodies as the LEED Evaluation, ASHRAE, the
      Swiss Minergy Standard, BREEAM and the European Standard 2000. The RWE
      headquarters in Essen, designed in 1991 and completed in 1996, is one of
      the first ecological orientated high-rise buildings that provides for
      natural ventilation on each floor, with its double facade technology. The
      new Lufthansa Aviation Center, awarded in 1997 first prize in an
      international competition, requires only one-third of the energy of a
      conventional office building. The European Investment Bank in Luxemburg,
      to be completed in 2008, is certified as "very good" by the British
      Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM)
      and is the first building in continental Europe to be judged by these
      standards. Also, the project for the new Main Station in Stuttgart, to be
      built from 2010 up to 2016, was awarded the Europe Holcim Award Silver
      2005 and the Global Holcim Award Gold 2006, the highest endowed
      architectural awards, for its sustainable construction. As a "zero-energy
      station" it requires no heating, cooling, or mechanical ventilation.
