Short Description
Macroeconomic systems are changing due to socio technical functions in relation to primary, secondary or tertiary working system. Technological innovations grow only under certain socio economic conditions. Vice versa technological innovations may cause changing social structures.
Technology transfer strategies from other disciplines, industries, sectors, or cultures may advance innovation in the construction sector as long as one considers the soft and social factors of technology transplantation in the new embedded environment.
These socio technical aspects are decisive for the development of life support systems or ambient assisted living of any built environment:
What will be the future life style, how will our cities look if we face demographic changes, migration, globalization, and environmental disasters?
How can we profit from synergies between technology, social structures, and economical systems?
How can we design customized hightech living environments for accessibility, health care, and usability and ensure its future constructible and buildable adaptation or remodelingrenovation-recycling?

  • Demographic change, migration und globalization, background information, social effects
  • Life – age, living standard and life style-/city visions
  • Individual life style/individual domestic care, high-tech assist systems: Ambient Assisted Living
  • Implementation of high-tech assist systems in the house industry: Modularity, flexibility, industrialization, „Open-Building“-approach
  • Remodeling, reconfiguration, renovation, rehabilitation, recycling, disassembly by flexible, modular systems („Un-Plug“, „Re-Play“)
  • Customization/personalization of assistive living space (refer to Module P 03 ARC, Thematic Field 1: Industrialized Customization in Architecture)
  • Technology Assisted Living: Robotics, mechatronics, micro system technology, information & communication technology
