Werner Sobek on the Link between Sustainability and Serial Architecture
The company Aktivhaus (founded by Werner Sobek and Klaus Fischer) is one of the winners of a competition launched by GdW, Germany’s biggest federation of housing associations. Participants in the competition were asked to design prefabricated units that can be mounted in a short period of time and with a tight budget — and which still offer high architectural quality. The aktivhaus concept designed by Werner Sobek was found to be among the very best of the manifold ideas that were handed in. The results of the competition were documented in a film that can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niGuYQ6JuLw.
