Eco design

0102084402300.jpgPrague’s many high rise apartments are being transformed from their original drab, grey exteriors to brightly painted buildings that look more like new developments rather than the concrete, architectural disasters they once were. It would be interesting to know the changes in energy consumption because of the addition of exterior insulation and double glazing, if anyone ever checked these things.

In Germany, it appears that the same transformations are taking place to older apartment buildings also. Spiegel online has an article all about it.
