Demands placed on the Built Environment in the Wake of Demographic Change and Shifting Orientations of Use

In this line of research we investigate the impact of demographic change on construction activities and the building stock over long time periods (until 2060).

  • MATI - Human-Architecture-Technology Interaction for Demographic Sustainability 
  • Germany 2060 – Trends and scenario based futures of the building stock
  • Elderly and disabled-appropriate living in Dresden
