Sustainable Architecture in Vorarlberg: Energy Concepts and Construction Systems

Ulrich Dangel is an assistant professor at Texas A&M, a graduate of the University of Oregon and Universität Stuttgart. His professional experience at Foster and Partners and Grimshaw Architects includes landmark projects such as the Frankfurt Airport, the McLaren Headquarters, the Dolder Grand Hotel and the Eden Project. He was a 2009 recipient of the UT Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award. 

Prof. Dangel will be presenting concepts from his new book, “Sustainable Architecture in Vorarlberg.” 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 lecture presents particularly successful projects of various typologies from recent years and portrays their development from design idea to built detail.
