Resource-efficient design and construction of structures

The construction industry is by far the most resource-intensive sector in the European Union, with around 40-50% of all primary raw materials consumed by architects and engineers in this area. While in the last 2-3 decades, the focus was on the energy consumption of buildings, material consumption will also play a major role in the future. Basically, there are different approaches to optimize this, 1. The minimization of the use of materials, 2. The reuse of materials or components or 3. The use of renewable materials. This will be explained in detail in the lecture on the basis of textile structures.
