Building materials that persist – Architecture responding to climate and life cycle.

If construction products were perfectly recyclable, all ecological efforts and expositions could be related to a virtually infinite useful life, i.e. they would approach zero. The extension of the actual life cycle of buildings and the extension of the useful life of construction products beyond the life cycle of a building are thus key tasks for sustainable building!

It is time for an update! Where do we stand today? Where could we be standing in the near future? We would like to welcome you most cordially at BauZ! 2020!
