Demolition or sustainable structure renewal and revitalization while preserving the design language and context? When a holistic approach is taken to a building’s life cycle, rehabilitation is clearly more sustainable in terms of ecology and energy use. Demolition always means a release of ‘grey energy‘ – the primary energy invested when a building is erected. TCHOBAN VOSS Architekten deal intensively with the subject of re-use and revitalization of existing buildings and present numerous different ways conscious and sustainable treatment of existing structures may not only preserve urban diversity but also develop it further, taking into account the relevant historical and urban-development context. The original function determines the scale and structure in which a new matrix of uses and an architectural solution are created. International examples by TCHOBAN VOSS Architekten are presented in the exhibition by means of photos and videos.
