Abstrakt

In a time where the ecological crisis is evident worldwide there is a need for a
deeper understanding of how architects and engineers can contribute for the better. To succeed in this we must address central questions: How to approach fundamentals in construction? How to engage with building industry and related industries, and how can we through new ways of construction support qualitative livable and fully sustainable built environments. Innovative designs or technologies based on existing practices cannot provide the answer. Altogether, we have to revisit, rethink and revise our understanding of materials, building techniques, and construction practices – we have to study historical building traditions, explore the intelligence of crafts, test the advantages of industrial production, and apply CAD/CAM wisely. We have to scrutinize all cultures of construction to extract the most viable promising ideas. This article
looks at tectonic ecologies as a way to critically approach this in architecture.
