The Resource Efficiency of Settlement Structures research area investigates to what extent and with which approaches cities, buildings and infrastructure can be shaped and developed so as to use land and natural resources in the most sparing and environmentally friendly way.

Research topics

  • Use requirements placed upon the built-up environment due to demographic change and new demand orientations [more]
  • Material flows from housing construction, non-housing construction and road construction in settlement-structural contexts [more]
  • Evaluation of the greater resource efficiency in settlement structures [more]
  • Integrative and sectoral approaches to resource efficiency and settlement-structural resource models [more]
