The Open Building: A Review of Its Economics, Environment and Related Social and Safety Issues
In this chapter, we discuss the concept of an open building as it is described in many different electronic databases. The term open building refers to a building which can be used flexibly according to a user’s needs, without demolition. The use of open buildings is possibly one of the most effective means of creating a sustainable built environment. We also study the viewpoints of academic researchers, and so look at to previous research papers on the concept of open buildings.
