Sustainable Architecture in Germany
 
All over the world, sustainability and the environment are affecting decisions made by businesses and consumers everyday. In no field is this more evident than in architecture, whereenvironmental advances can have a significant impact on energyconsumption. Many of these advances originated in Germany, acountry known for its progressive approach to the environmentand for its willingness to tackle issues of sustainability head on.
This issue introduces new approaches to sustainability in Germany, with a focus on recent projects by ChristophIngenhoven and the HafenCity urban redevelopment project inHamburg. The work of Ingenhoven Architects is characterizedby the use of modern technology to take maximum advantageof the resources provided by nature. HafenCity is notable for the way that it incorporates sustainability as a central theme ina large-scale redevelopment. The ideas in these projects allowus to rediscover something we knew long ago that wind, sun,and rain are bountiful resources that should be used instead ofwasted.
