What is dasHAUS? Created in Germany, the compact pavilion demonstrates the most up-to-the-minute green technologies in home-building, from the sleekest of sustainable materials to renewable energy systems. Packed full of bright ideas, dasHAUS started a fourteen-city tour of the U.S. a year ago; now it's at home in Denver's Sustainability Park, the tour's last stop, for a ten-day layover. Following is an introductory video.
DasHAUS opened to the public yesterday, but the grand opening and ribbon-cutting, with remarks by dignitaries, is at 4 p.m. today. A networking reception follows nearby at RedLine, and continues until 8 p.m. A series of events are planned through October 23, including a half-day conference and guided tour on Thursday; for details and to RSVP, visit the Denver dasHAUS Tour website.
