Designing within the limits

  • Research group on living and surviving

Abstract

The simulation model results indicate a number of important limits which will apply to houses to be built in the period 1970 to 2020. The architect will be bound by three restrictions:
  1. 1

    a maximum amount which includes cost of materials and man-hours and other building costs;

     
  2. 2

    a maximum quantity of scarce resources in the case of steel, aluminium copper, lead, and zinc;

     
  3. 3

    a maximum amount of energy, which includes on-site consumption and the energy required for manufacturing the building materials.
