Unit 2 - Resource-productive material use

Kohler, Niklaus (Germany) / Chini, Abdol (United States)

A central objective of sustainable building is the optimal long-term use of the primary resources materials, energy, water, and land and of the existing buildings. Strategies can be input oriented, building stock oriented or output oriented. Large differences exist in the implementation of the strategies when taking into account the specific speed of development and of urbanisation of a country.
