Zero Carbon Housing in Hamburg

hamburg iba 00As the world looks to “green” technology for the future, one city in Germany, Hamburg has for the last 7 years (2006-2013) been part of an zero-carbon building experiment, the International Building Exhibition (IBA).  In the suburb of Wilhelmsburg, you will find many eco-housing developments.

Many of the building architecture and designs hope to innovate urban housing developments around the world.  What was once only opened to the professionals, the building exhibition will be opened to the public tours and programs starting Easter 2014.
