The eco-friendly Active House construction of tomorrow is here today


The newly-formed Collaborative Research Centre at Stuttgart University is currently exploring ways to create sustainable and eco-friendly construction for the future.

The aim is to significantly reduce the amount of resources used in the construction industry step by step within just a few years.

“Entirely new types of buildings are being created – our research is entering completely uncharted territory in many areas”, said the renowned architect and engineer Werner Sobek, founder of the Collaborative Research Center.
