Exhibition of the surPLUShome in Essen (Germany)
After the return of the surPLUShome to Europe, its next stop will be Essen. The German DeuBau, an exhibition for building companies and professional builders, takes place in January 2010. Furthermore Essen is part of the European Capital of Culture in 2010 (Ruhr 2010) in which many events combine social and cultural visions throughout the year.
DGNB – certificate
To show the value of sustainable design, we will accredit the surPLUShome according to German sustainability requirements. In cooperation with the DGNB – Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen (German Association for Sustainable Building), we already started the process of certification.
Solar Mall Darmstadt
After the stop in Essen, the surPLUShome will return to Darmstadt and it will find its final site next to the Solar Decathlon 2007 Team Germany house. Both houses mark the beginning of a “solar mall” on our university campus, next to the Faculty of Architecture. After its rebuilding the surPLUShome will be basis of several science and study works of different faculties of TU Darmstadt.
