Virtual opening event of the NEST unit HiLo

About this Event

Please find the official event website and the program here.

"High Performance – Low Emissions": Following this principle, the NEST unit HiLo demonstrates how attractive architecture can be when combining energy- and resource-saving construction and operation. The unit brings together innovative planning and design methods for efficient structures in concrete with self-learning and adaptive building technologies. The integrated design and fabrication approach used to build the two-story unit marks a starting point for the way we may design and build in the future.
The unit on the top platform of Empa's and Eawag's NEST research and innovation building was realized by ETH Zurich's Block Research Group and the Architecture and Building Systems Group in cooperation with numerous industrial partners.


At the virtual opening event on October 6, 2021, the project teams will provide insights into the technologies and processes used and discuss where this path will lead us in the future.



The event will be held in English and simultaneously translated into German.
