Switch2Save H2020 project launched 28/2/2022 its Architectural Design Competition to explore the possibilities offered by lightweight switchable smart glass solutions for energy-efficient glass facades buildings.
Switch2Save Architectural Design Competition aims to collect design concepts of non-residential buildings (new or renovation projects), featuring glass facades, roofs, or large window to wall areas, in any climatic context.
We invite students and young professionals to present a design concept in which there is an optimum exploitation of the Switch2Save EC/TC smart functionalities, supported by a clear energy-saving concept towards meeting the EU energy-saving targets for buildings while considering occupants’ comfort and wellbeing. In addition, the successful aesthetic integration of the IGUs will be evaluated, as well as the replication potential of the design approach.
