Usually such novel idea is subjected to further experimentation, testing and prototyping before it can be implemented. The image below shows how to read TRL’s to categorise the innovative ideas.

Natural air conditioning improves the indoor environment, decreases the energy use of buildings and bridges the gap between architecture and technology.


Buildings will be designed as "climate machines" using the ambient energy of the earth mass, the wind and the sun, eliminating the need for mechanical systems.


The Earth, Wind & Fire concept will be applied in a newly to be build hotel in Amsterdam, worlds first zero energy hotel.
