Alumni Explore the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg

25/10/2013

The International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg was the most recently target of an excursion by the alumni group in northern Germany. About 30 RWTH Aachen alumni got together in the untypical mild autumn weather in the Wilhelmsburg neighborhood of Hamburg.

 

There they separated into two groups and were given a professional tour of parts of the IBA project area. The innovative algae house made a particular impresion.Microalgae are cultured in the house's glass facade and produce biomass and heat through photosynthesis and solar heat. After visiting the building exhibition the alumni went to a coze restaurant located directly on the Wilhelmsburg Veringskanal. Alumni Winfried Sturm and Arno Rogalla organized and coordinated everything on site – thank you!
