UMWELT ARENA BY RENÉ SCHMID ARCHITEKTEN: A WORLD UNDER ONE MULTIFUNCTIONAL ROOF
Swiss architect Walter Schmid, promoter of the idea for Umwelt Arena, had promised his son René: “If you can design a building with zero CO2 output that can maintain its performance for at least 20 years, I’ll build it”.
Easier said than done. But Walter Schmid kept his word and the project for Umwelt Arena, designed by studio René Schmid Architekten, is now a reality. Sustained by an oval-shaped crystalline roof covered in solar panels that provides enough power to satisfy the needs of the entire building, this structure is a shining example of eco-friendly architecture.
