Short Description
New approaches which are helping to bring different areas and disciplines of innovative products on the market, nowadays are increasingly vital. Boundary-scientific work, systematic technology transfer between different branches of industry and aimed transformation of existing technologies are only a few catchwords, which depict how innovation can be developed prospectively. Beyond that the interaction of technology, sociology, and economy is playing a big role. Henry Ford’s mass production, the plentiful spreading of computers, the diffusion of micro systems and robotics – all these are phenomena which not only reflect the spirit of the time but also unfold a huge potential concerning the changes in our society and economy. An understanding of the mutual influencing of human needs, social circumstances, technological possibilities and economical dynamics is crucial to the design of new socio-technological concepts for our built environment.
