Building Technology Showcase: Media

Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems

The Evolution of a Sustainable Building

Over the course of the Showcase's 14-month renovation and fit-out, Fraunhofer CSE and its partners took over 1200 images of the project. Though only a portion of the overall whole, these pictures chronicle the significant - and often dramatic - changes the building underwent in its transformation from derelict to research center.
