“Architecture is frozen music.” says Goethe, the German writer in one of his texts. Digital and smart technologies and their increasing relevance to buildings and cities are an important factor in the architectural design process today, says ABB on the new video series of its international tour of exceptional buildings and architects, called “Frozen Music”.

Architects are facing high expectations on the design, function and performance of a building. The ability to implement secure technology that offers control and reduction of energy consumption and the overall carbon footprint of a building is a key element.

If the same technology additionally provides safety to the inhabitants and easy steering for them of anything from light, blinds to air-quality and climate, it offers high comfort to the user and is an excellent tool for a successful building.

Join Katrin Förster, International Key Account Manager Architects and Interior Architects at ABB, presents in “Frozen Music” some of the world’s most superb projects and the architects behind to a global community. There are episodes dedicated to a new residential complex risen from the ashes of old and abandoned buildings, great office spaces that help employees identify with their work environment and connect with each other, and a museum in which the play of light and shadow emphasizes the artwork.
