Climate zones and local resources

The various climatic zones on our planet require special construction methods and constructions. In hot and dry areas, thermal insulation plays a subordinate role. Earthquake-prone areas require fail-safe constructions. Polar climates arouse the need for heat and light. Strong winds require high stability and aerodynamic designs.

  • A cement builing in Siberia or in the Sahara does not meet human needs without high energy consumption of technical installations.
  • The consumption of synthetic insulation materials in North America results in the use of energy-eating air-conditioning systems.

In the various climate zones, however, most of the building materials are found as natural raw materials. It is not necessary to use European or American wood to make such constructions from structural timber (KvH). Since the need for woody material is low for a basic construction and the cross-sections of the support and support required for the application are small, such or similar constructions can be used almost everywhere on the earth.

  • In Mongolia there are shrubs, steppe grass, clay, limestones, barks, animal skins and sands on the spot.
  • Siberia has endless forests, peat bogs, lime and clay soils.
  • In Congo there is no shortage of wood and earth.
  • In Japan and Taiwan, there are forest, rocks and algae, muschelkalk and fish from the sea.
  • In Yemen, an ancient building culture with huge clay buildings indicates certain knowledge.
  • The Spaniards need earth to build against the heat.
  • The bulkheads can withstand stone stones outside the humidity inside with wood the climate.
  • The Moroccans use clay and small amounts of wood.
  • The Central Europeans and North Americans have the largest selection of natural materials at their disposal. At the same time, they have a perfect infrastructure and technical means of every kind.
