Energy has long played a decisive role as an issue in housing development and detached family homes. Austria’s architects and planning specialists are among the best in the world in this sector, while state grants and policy encourage energy efficient building. However in the incomparably larger sector of public and office buildings a move towards energy efficiency is still just in the starting phase. This sector represents a key market for the BIG in the future, and BIG Az W is accordingly organising an extensive discussion of the issues involved with a panel of architects and specialists.
