Architect Muck Petzet re: the “ecological house”

Back in August, Christian Tröster visited the 2012 Biennale and discussed Reduce/Reuse/Recycle, the German contribution at the Biennale with architect Muck Petzet, who commissioned the entry.

Tröster can thus report that Mr. Petzet believes “the idea of the ‘ecological’ house is an all-pervading fiction…When calculating a building’s energy use, if you consider not just the energy that is required to run it but the energy consumed over the building’s entire life cycle, then passive houses suddenly don’t look so attractive“…
