New Transsolar/Behnisch exhibition opens Saturday, Stefan Bennisch lectures

Ecology. Design. Synergy. is the name of a new exhibition opening Saturday, March 28th, that features the work of Behnisch Architekten and Transolar ClimateEngeering. The press release quotes Behnisch partner David Cook as stating, "The exhibition is not necessarily intended to present models for sustainable architecture. By drawing on the five senses, the exhibition attempts to provoke a re-definition of the term 'sustainability' by focusing on the complex series of relationships between human beings and their immediate environment."

The exhibition will feature such projects as the LEED Platinum Genzyme Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Norddeutsche Landesbank in Hannover, Germany.

This Saturday, March 28th at 11:30 a.m, there will be a public lecture by Stefan Behnisch and Transsolar partner Thomas Auer at the Loyola University Museum of Art, 820 North Michigan, where the exhibition will run through May 17, 2009. Hours are Tuesday, 11AM–8PM; Wednesday–Sunday, 11AM–6PM. Admission: $6 general; $5 senior; free for students and children under 14; free Tuesdays.
