The influence of architecture on environment – regenerative design
Languages of publication
Facing the climate change and scarcity of natural resources, it is essential to treat architecture and the whole urbanized environment as a part of one complex system creating nature. A building takes construction materials from nature and has an influence on water and soil conditions, biodiversity, air pollution, microclimate. Consequently, an existing building becomes a part of ecosystem having both beneficial and/or negative impact on nature. In order to construct an architectural object in compliance with current requirements, it is necessary to demonstrate a holistic knowledge of environmental conditions and foresee how they will be affected by a performing building.
