Neue Monte Rosa Hut
ETH Zurich and the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC) present “hut of the future”.
After six years on the drawing board – two of which as a student project design – and a construction phase spanning two summers, the New Monte Rosa Hut above Zermatt finally opened for business in Sep 2009. Nicknamed “Mountain Crystal”, the innovative building generates over 90 percent of its energy itself. It is scheduled to start receiving guests normally in March 2010 and will continue to serve ETH Zurich as a research object in power and building service engineering.
2,883 meters above sea level, the New Monte Rosa Hut is currently the most complex wooden construction in Switzerland. Covered in a shimmering silver aluminum shell and with a photovoltaic system integrated in the southern facade, it generates its own power and is expected to be at least 90 percent energy self-sufficient.
