Architect Caspar Schmitz-Morkramer admits that he needs to rethink his stance in light of the escalating climate crisis – or at least really develop it! Just like the vast majority of architects. But he has his doubts. On the one hand, everyone says the same thing; on the other, there are contradictions at every turn. Before Caspar Schmitz-Morkramer can find his stance, he has to go through the labyrinth following a guiding thread. Der Nachhalt is the title of a series of publications that documents and underpins the transformation of the architecture office of caspar. into a specialist in sustainable construction. The Prologue is dedicated to the prerequisites for this task. This volume presents numerous facts and positions relating to sustainability in an informative, graphic manner, with just the right sense of irony and provocation.

To accompany and expand the “Nachhalt” digitally, we have set up the site There you will find news and interesting facts on the topic; articles, conversations, graphics, opinions and much more.
