Royal Institute Recognizes Passive House Founder
Feist, who founded the Passivhaus Institut in Germany in 1996 and is its current director, says the award “shows that architecture is aware of the environmental challenges” it is facing, and notes that “high levels of energy efficiency and excellent architectural design go hand in hand.” The awards ceremony was held in London on February 6, 2013.
Another nod to sustainability in this year’s awards was the Honorary Fellowship given to Harry Mallgrave, Ph.D., director of the International Center for Sustainable New Cities at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
