The HiLo-Unit is a two-layer, double-curved concrete shell
on the Nest research building in Dübendorf near Zürich. The HiLo research & innovation unit for the Next Evolution in Sustainable Building Technologies (Nest) platform at Empa in Dübendorf, Switzerland, demonstrates
how High (Hi) performance can be achieved with Low
(Lo) embodied and operational emissions by combining lightweight concrete structures with novel fabrication and construction methods, and integrated and adaptive building systems.
