mt rose architecture

For the 150 anniversary of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich, a collaboration of the school with the Swiss Alpine-Club will give birth to a eco-friendly alpine hut on the Mt Rose. At 2883 meters in the heart of the Swiss Alpes, this high-tech building will get 90% of its energy from the sun and the water will come from the surrounding glaciers. The building should be ready by september 2009, visit the project’s website for more infos.
