Join us for an insightful conversation with Swiss architect Christian Wassmann and leading climate journalist David Wallace-Wells of the New York Times on sustainable building. As featured in Architectural Digest, Wassmann’s extraordinary home stands as a stunning feat of architecture and a paragon of energy efficiency, generating an impressive 18,000 kilowatts of solar energy while consuming a mere 8,000. The surplus energy powers an electric car and gets donated to the grid, showcasing Wassmann’s dedication to sustainability and eco-conscious living. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the fusion of art, design, and environmental consciousness in a home that leaves a lasting impression on architecture’s relationship with the natural world.
