Midday sun at the touch of a button
Midday sun at the touch of a button
At ETH Zurich, there is a room where the sun shines at the touch of a button; one hour it's noon in the Sahara, the next it's January in Berlin. Researchers use it to test newly developed building systems, components and materials. How well does the new building material protect against the midday heat in Marrakesh? How must a new façade be printed so that it's not too cold in the Berlin winter and not too hot in the summer? researchers can now simulate this one-to-one in the Zero Carbon Building Systems Lab, a silvery grey building on the Hönggerberg hill.
