CORPUS Magazine

One in a thousand

Five projects were among the finalists of the International Highrise Award. Now the winner was chosen in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt. He surprises. On the one hand, because the building is neither in North America nor in Asia - and on the other hand, because, contrary to the current trend, it is a pure office building. The Torre Reforma puts Mexico City on the world map of pioneering architecture.

High-performance newcomer

Flexible, non-combustible, breathable and at the same time highly efficient - SLENTEX® belongs to a completely new generation of high-performance insulating materials. Expert and project manager Dr. Wibke Lölsberg will tell us first-hand where the material can best play to its strengths and what makes it special.


Greener Buildings for Everyone

Across the world, evidence is growing that green buildings bring multiple benefits. On occasion of the World Green Building Week CORPUS spoke with James Drinkwater, Director of the World Green Building Council’s Europe Regional Network.

Living labs - how smart cities aspire to the future

Smart City concepts stand for holistic thinking, sustainability and a better quality of life through clever solutions ranging from infrastructure to waste disposal. Such clever cities are currently being created all over the world - many of them prototypes. The approaches are different, but the vision is the same: nothing less than a blueprint for tomorrow's city.

Going high

At the beginning of November, trend-setting residential and commercial buildings will once again be awarded the International Highrise Award in Frankfurt's Paulskirche.
