Refuge du Goûter.

Hervé Dessimoz and Thomas Büchi have been committed to sustainable development since the 2000s. They created the Palais de l’Équilibre at Expo.02.

They designed an exhibition in conjunction with the Cité de la Science et de l’Industrie (Paris) to educate visitors about sustainable development.

The pavilion was donated to CERN by the Swiss Confederation and rebuilt on the CERN site in 2004. It is now known as the Globe of Science and Innovation.

The Refuge du Goûter, on the slopes of Mont Blanc, is the culmination of their research into sustainable development, with the aim of demonstrating that if we can construct a building at 3835 m which is autonomous in terms of its operating energy requirements, there are no longer any excuses for not doing so at lower altitudes.

The Fédération française des clubs alpins de montagne has contracted the project.

Hervé Dessimoz: EPFL SIA architect, CEO of Groupe H.
Thomas Büchi:  Wood engineer, CEO of
Charpente Concept.
