In 2007, Brussels set out to create buildings that were very low-energy, economical, and beautiful, which they dubbed “Exemplary Buildings.” In less than a decade, Exemplary Buildings have transformed the market and helped make the Passive House standard mandated building code in 2015.

 

Essential to this revolution were the efforts of architect Sebastian Moreno-Vacca and his firm A2M, whose projects have proven that Passive House can be beautiful and need not cost more than other buildings. Join Moreno-Vacca to discuss how growing Passive House construction in NYC can deliver the deep cuts in energy use proportionate to the climate challenge, while also providing increased comfort, indoor health, and climate resilience.
