Construction without side effects.

Research

Our task is clear: construction must become climate-neutral and resource-efficient by 2045. However, there is currently a lack of both research and rapid implementation of new ideas.

Our mission

The mission of the LAB Lausitz Art of Building is to implement the largest paradigm shift in the construction industry to date: to transform all construction and the use of the built environment into a climate- and resource-neutral, durable, variable, aesthetic and value-creating construction method.

There is an urgent need for action

A significant intensification of research in the construction sector

is therefore one of the most important tasks with extremely great importance for society as a whole for the future, both nationally and internationally, due to the enormous leverage effect.

Engineering

And that doesn’t just mean in terms of design, but above all constructively. So it’s not just about architecture, but about engineering. The previous proof of structural safety, serviceability and durability must be supplemented by proof of climate compatibility.
