Sustainable Architecture across Europe
 
C. F. Møller Architects has been chosen to take part in the exhibition "Sustainable Architecture across Europe", showing best practice examples of sustainable architecture from all over Europe. The exhibition, opened on November 30rd, in the European Parliament in Brussels, marks the 20th anniversary of the Architects' Council of Europe (ACE).
 

 
The project on display by C. F. Møller Architects is "Dragen", one of the first institutions in Denmark to be built as a passive house, which means that its energy consumption, and thereby its CO2 footprint, has been drastically reduced.

 
Environmentally harmful materials were rejected, and the project largely uses materials with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, certifying that they impose a minimal environmental load.
The energy consumption involved in the building process was minimised by utilising prefabricated elements with brief assembly times.
 

 
Two Danish projects
All in all 32 projects from 25 different countries are part of the exhibition, two of them are Danish contributions - the other participating Danish company is aart, showing a CO2-neutral one-family house. Among the other projects is the Unilever Headquarters in Hamburg by Behnisch Architekten.
The exhibition will travel to several European countries for the next two years.
 
The Architects' Council of Europe, with headquarters and secretariat in Brussels, represents the interests of about 480,000 architects in the EU.
