Transsolar develops and validates innovative climate and energy concepts for buildings with the provision of highly comfortable environments with a minimum of energy use. Environmental conditions are influenced by all aspects of design, therefore, we work collaboratively with the architect from the start of the design process, considering each step from the standpoint of fundamental thermodynamics. This generates a climate concept in which form, material, and mechanical systems are synergistic components of a well-orchestrated climate control system; and conver- sely, an environmental control strategy that is integral to the architectural concept.

Transsolar has worked with several renown architects such as Frank Gehry, Sanaa, Behnisch + P., Herzog & de Meuron, etc.
