Modular wooden building with a membrane skin: Stuttgart’s experimental B10 House

With this plus-energy structure, Werner Sobek has set the standard for sustainable building in an historical context. Aktivhaus B10, a prototype for future living, is quite at home among its neighbouring icons of modernity by Mies van der Rohe or Le Corbusier in Stuttgart’s Weissenhof district. The house was built by setting two wood-frame modules, each more than 14 metres long, onto a steel support framework.
Architect: Werner Sobek, Stuttgart
Weißenhofsiedlung, Bruckmannweg 10, 70191 Stuttgart, Germany
The architects have recorded the delivery and assembly of the modules in a time-elapse film.
