Fundación Canal Exhibition Madrid
The exhibition offers a detailed analysis of 24 architectural projects – two from each of the 12 participants – to inform and explain what sustainable architecture is, the problems that need to be overcome and the solutions that can be provided.
Architype, a UK architectural practice that has won numerous awards for its sustainable designs and integrated eco-minimalist approach, has been invited to exhibit two of its acclaimed projects:
The Genesis Centre, an education resource for Somerset College, and St Luke’s in Wolverhampton, the first BREEAM Excellent rated primary school in Britain.
The exhibition includes projects from a variety of sectors including: schools, corporate headquarters, government buildings, homes and eco-towns. Some of these works are now a reality and others are in process.
