It is an amazing project and we did the EnergyConcept - soooo cool :-)

Do you like to head to the Louis Vuitton flagship on New Bond Street and just drool over all the stunning pieces of clothing and accessories?

We aren’t ashamed to admit that we have done this on more than one occasion, so we are beyond-excited to reveal that a Louis Vuitton museum is on its way. That means you’re allowed and somewhat encouraged, even, to stand and stare at all the beautiful pieces of craftsmanship for as long as you want. Pretty cool, right?….

Publication
Design for Outdoor Comfort

Great cities are made by great outdoor spaces. Good thermal comfort on urban spaces will increase the intensity of outdoor activities.

As climate engineers we always have been curios how we could inform design processes for best adaptation to the local climate. For our outdoor comfort projects we developed new design tools based on up to date human bio-metereological parameters.

Design for Outdoor Comfort is an interactive publication by Transsolar about strategies, how to measure and calculate outdoor comfort as well showcasing concepts for MASDAR (Abu Dhabi) and the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar.

There is a lot of common sense what people like in their cities. So cars are hardly found on any favored place. Enjoy and let us know "what place do you like in your city".

About us
What is Green & Sexy?

Green & Sexy is a blog about sustainability in the built environment by Transsolar.

The building sector is responsible for almost 50% of all domestic CO2 emissions and energy use (Europe and North America) and has to reduce carbon emissions by 90% by 2050 (compared to 1990).

How is this possible? Collecting and connecting ideas to maximize impact is the goal of this blog.
