Professors’ Conference at Ziegel Zentrum Süd e.V.

Energy-efficient architecture in Germany and the Czech Republic

At this year’s Professors’ Conference at Ziegel Zentrum Süd e.V. (ZZS) speakers and delegates addressed the consequences of the dramatic energy turnaround in Germany for building construction. The conference at Regensburg University of Applied Sciences, Department of Architecture, was combined with a three-day excursion to the Czech Republic, during which the delegates were accompanied and guided by some of the biggest names in Czech architecture. 35 professors from more than 20 universities in the Southern German region were treated to a deep and sometimes very personal insight into the Czech architectural scene.
