The “energy eater” European building stock is aiming for a greener future. Researchers are testing an “envelope” system combining active and passive technologies, fitted over the existing façade, to make buildings more efficient. But will it work efficiently under different temperatures, both in northern and southern Europe?

This report, released by Arup, explores how the application of green infrastructure to the surfaces of buildings can have a positive impact on cities and inhabitants.   Can retrofitting cityscapes with vegetation (particularly in building façades) improve the health and well-being of urban citizens? Can we use green facades to capture renewable energy and drive sustainability? The authors try to provide answers to these complex questions that demand a multi-disciplinary approach to reach a reasonable view.
