Ecology. Design. Synergy: Behnisch + Transsolar ClimateEngineering 20-29 June, Mon-Fri 12-5:30pm, Sat 12.00-5.00pm Cube Gallery, 113-115 Portland Street, Manchester Behnisch partner David Cook says that sustainability is a word that has been 'bastardised', but this thoughtful exhibition is the real thing. If you missed it in London last week, make time for that trip to Manchester you've been planning. The show is structured around six themes: temperature, air, sound, light, material and human scale.
It may sound like you've heard it all before, but this is an intelligent presentation of the subject, illustrated with inspiring projects which are the result of a 15-year collaboration between architect and engineer - integrated design at its best.
En route from Berlin to the USA, Zumtobel got wind of this show and brought it to the UK.
However, commendably, there is not a single Zumtobel product on display.
