The space in so-called megacities is limited, the population is growing and work and residential space is becoming increasingly scarce.
Cities live from their mythology. They are still synonymous with employment, cultural diversity and freedom of ideas. They are catalysts for change and growth; there is nowhere else where so many ways of life and ideas come together.
So that it remains the case in the future, increasingly more architects, property investors, construction planners and the construction industry around the world are addressing the pressing questions of climate change in their future planning. In doing so, the central task for all responsible parties is: how can the sustainability of a building or a whole city, in which aesthetic forms will remain necessary, be integrated with the increasingly important social, economic, political, technical and ecological contexts, and simultaneously the resource-saving and cultural aspects so that acceptance and identification by various groups of future users can be maintained? How utilitarian and beautiful must future sustainable construction projects be in order to comprehensively meet all requirements, to be sustainable and at the same time energy-friendly and to consequently live up to the high requirements of future generations?
