Smarter Living: The 2,000-Watt Society

Philadelphia Center for Architecture

1218 Arch Street Philadelphia PA 19107

A person needs 17,500 kilowatt-hours a year on global average, corresponding to a continuous requirement of 2,000 watts. In Switzerland, the figure is three times higher, i.e., 6,000 watts per person, and in the U.S. the figure is currently approximately 6 times higher. The Smarter Living: The 2,000-Watt Society exhibition shows how the requirements of the 2,000-watt society can be combined with outstanding architecture. It uses 18 examples to illustrate different approaches to sustainable architecture such as complex technical solutions and clever references to traditional construction methods, small buildings and very large projects, conversions and new city districts.

This exhibition is made possible by Swissnex (Consulate of Switzerland), Cleantech Switzerland, Stadt Zurich, Novatlantis, the Embassy of Switzerland in the United States, Presence Switzerland, State Secretariat for Education and Research, and the Philadelphia Center for Architecture.
