Our Bricks are Drops

PRESENTED ON MAR 26, 2014
IN TOKYO @ VOL 112

What if a building could act as a living being; could absorb and conserve heat energy with no insulation at all?

Matyas Gutai, founder of Allwater, explains his water-based wall heating/cooling system and goes into depth on how he is making it a reality. He believes the Allwater method of interior heating and cooling will reduce our reliance on our city's power grid and take microclimate control in a new, exciting direction.
