Coolest White Paint featured at Architects@Work

The Coolest White is an ultra-durable paint that protects buildings and urban structures from excessive solar radiation – thus slowing down the Urban Heat Island Effect.

The dark-coloured, heat-retaining materials that are used to construct the buildings in our cities are one of the main causes of the urban heat island effect. Buildings absorb solar radiation and store heat from the sun, which means they not only require large amounts of energy to achieve adequate interior cooling, but that the absorbed heat is also released into the surrounding urban environment. As global warming threatens to exacerbate this problem there is a pressing need for intelligent solar heat management solutions for our cities. That’s why UNStudio has developed the Coolest White with Monopol Colors.

Architect@Work is a leading two-day trade show for architects, interior designers and specifiers. The aim of the fair is to showcase advanced materials, technologies and equipment, and create an optimal environment for the development of contacts between design and construction professionals, and consumer brands. Part of the broader consortium of Architect@Work events–held yearly and in 15 countries–this event is one of the most widely anticipated and attended editions.
