Sustainable, Intelligent, Arcologic - A Futurist's Vision of Future Buildings
MetadataShow full item record
Future buildings are shaped by social, economic and technological forces that are at least partially already in existence. To mention a few: The need for energy efficiency and, more generally, for overall environmental efficiency during the whole life cycle of a building, the rising demands and convenience requirements of occupants, more frequent changes of use with reconstructions, renovations and refurbishments, and rather continuous integration of new information and communication technologies.
