Introduction to Building biology
Why Building Biology?
In the second half of the last century the world of construction has changed substantially.
The industrial revolution has introduced many new building methods and materials. Many synthetic chemicals found their way into our living environment. Electricity became available for almost everyone. Today we experience a boundless growth of wireless devices. The primary motivation of these developments is economic growth.
This unrestrained economic growth has led to depletion of resources, global warming, and pollution of land, water, air and ether. But also to social and cultural impoverishment. The gap between poor and rich has never been this poignant. Today the care for our earth is becoming of great importance. The need for sustainable building is becoming a necessity.
