Edition Innsbruck 2010
This year's competition was the sixth time that students from all over the world were given the opportunity to deliver proof of their knowledge about energy-efficient building methods.
The subject of the MULTI COMFORT HOUSE STUDENT CONTEST. was the renovation of a five-floor warehouse in the Parisian quarter of Pantin. The participants were free to decide on the new function and use of the building, but the suggested renovation solutions had to meet passive-house standards, i.e. highest thermal comfort with resultant energy and CO2 savings.
The talented young architecture students impressed with extraordinary ideas. Among the projects was a hotel, a library, a textile factory, a museum, a shopping mall, a student residence, a vocational training centre, a meeting place for young people, an artist's workshop and many more all of them complying with the passive-house principle offering optimum comfort in summer and winter and also effective noise protection.
