Form follows Climate

Research and development create an opportunity to realise high-quality, truly innovative architecture. Buildings that produce energy instead of consuming energy actually widen the playing field for architecture. After all, once a building starts generating energy, more money becomes available for investment in (architectural) quality. This offers new opportunities. In all of this, the basic principle is the motto Form follows Climate, which in effect is the same thing as Form follows Function. Only the functions are different and formulated in more intensive terms. The objective should be buildings that supply energy, both in a technical and a human sense. Intelligent buildings have a strong influence on society. They vitalise and lead to new insights and higher performance. This makes the building as a source of energy an established fact.
