Atmos Lab is devoted to helping architecture face the environmental challenges of our time with built-in common sense. Playing with temperature, sunlight, or wind, they provide a climate-responsive frame of mind, and healthier solutions to build with: more efficient, more comfortable, more sustainable. Atmos Lab will tell environmental stories from practice and research conducted in collaboration with Lacaton & Vassal, OFFICE KGDVS, Baukunst, and Baukuh.
