In the course of the
decreasing availability of fossil fuels and the resulting need for action, new
approaches have been followed in the construction industry in recent years. The
optimization of the building envelopes and the use of technical systems represent
an essential adjustment factor.
This development of new building materials,
technologies and planning tools offers a variety of possible solutions, but the
number of failure increases with growing complexity. Lack of success and no
longer controllable planning, implementation and operating processes require a
rethink towards simple solutions through holistic designs.
In the development
of building concepts, IB Hausladen understands "low-tech" less in the
sense of "no tech" than in the sense of robustness against uncertain
boundary conditions and develops strategies between passive and active
components in the building design.
