In the hands of the Stuttgart-based architecture and engineering firms Behnisch Architekten and Transsolar Climate Engineering, “green architecture” melds environmentally responsible design with a remarkable architectural aesthetic. In collaboration, the firms have produced designs that transform urban spaces and work environments for contemporary life. Of particular interest to Pittsburgh viewers is their winning RiverParc project for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
