How can textile façades protect the environment?


Filtering air, saving CO2, generating energy - textile facades can do all that. The textile facades are hung in front of already existing buildings.

Marina Chernyshova is researching this topic at ITA and explains to Ralph Caspers in this video how it works exactly. You can watch the video here ( ITA film clip from approx. minute 24:40 ).


The film "A Piece of the Future" is the second part of the RWTH Aachen University film series. For this, Clarissa Corrêa da Silva and Ralph Caspers, the presenter duo from the "Sendung-mit-der-Maus", took a look at various topics at RWTH. Using current research projects as examples, they explain why GreenTech is the foundation for our common future. One focus of the clip is on construction, from resource extraction to recycling and new methods. Have fun watching!

The film is only available in German. Thank you in advance for your kind understanding.
