Great documentary and straightforward explainer to the history and technology behind the Passive House Movement!
‘Passive Passion’ screening at New York Architecture & Design Film Festival
Passive Passion, a 21-minute documentary on a stringent German energy-efficiency standard, was selected for the 2011 New York Architecture and Design Film Festival. The film introduces the Passive House standard, a design method that incorporates insulation, airtightness, and heat-recovery ventilation to achieve staggering reductions in the energy required to heat and cool a building. Imagine essentially turning your home into a thermos.”
