In relation to climate change and sustainable development, we regard the challenges of our era as a chance for architecture to develop a contemporary culture of sustainable construction. It is our responsibility as architects to bring together new engineering innovations and scientific research to form a symbiotic relationship in buildings, and to find fitting designs. A great, new aesthetic potential for architectural design is unfolding: new formal languages, urban formations, building systems, and spatial configurations are emerging.
However, this also means an increase in the complexity of architecture. Design factors are growing and their interconnections are less clear. Whereas a hundred years ago, architects mainly worked with structural engineers, today a considerable array of consultants and expert designers is needed in order to achieve durable, sustainable, and beautiful architecture.
Only with this knowledge of principles and relationships can an architect make meaningful decisions, promote innovation, and make full use of his role as designer.
Pos architects have 25 years of experience in ecological and sustainable design. This knowledge is being constantly deepened and serves as a basis for creating architecture that can address the pressing questions of sustainability. Continually expanding through research projects, our expertise provides fertile soil for innovation and creativity in all areas – from building systems to formal language. Out of this emerge buildings that unite ecology with economy and are strongly based in form and design. We look for solutions in this stimulating field and view sustainable building as the driving force of a new aesthetic in architecture.
