Second Nature? Sustainability since Alvar Aalto Discussion with Andreas Ruby, Prof. Matthias Sauerbruch and Lena Kleinheinz / TALK (DE)

»Form must have a content, and that content must be linked with nature«, according to Alvar Aalto. What can we learn from Aalto’s perception of nature? Can it be helpful in redefining sustainability in today’s context? These questions are discussed by the architectural critic Andreas Ruby with Lena Kleinheinz of Magma Architecture and Prof. Matthias Sauerbruch of Sauerbruch Hutton. Kleinheinz and Sauerbruch are two of the most innovative representatives of sustainable building.
At the Summer Olympics in London, Magma Architecture used PVC that was free of toxic plasticisers for the first time. Sauerbruch Hutton has been one of the pioneers of integrated sustainable planning for 20 years. Their most important projects include the Museum Brandhorst in Munich, the Federal Environmental Agency in Dessau and the planned M9 Museum in Venice. Free admission
