Beyond Concrete: Strategies For A Post-Fossil Baukultur
FHNW Institut Architektur, Annette Helle, Barbara Lenherr (eds.)

This publication presents contributions from the symposium ‘Constructive Futures – Beyond Concrete’, which marked the start of the academic year 2021/2022 at the School of Architecture of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. Its aim is to explore constructive and future-oriented solutions beyond our professional comfort zones and provide the opportunity to reflect on where the construction and planning industry currently stands. Why does a fundamental change seem inevitable? With an eye towards our limited resources, we must also rethink approaches and nurture a design culture that finds new ways to deal with building materials.
