Description: Building design is complex multidisciplinary task in which architects, engineers, scientists, building industry, developers and manufactures are involved. It is desirable to create healthy indoor environment by the use of both: traditional and new advanced building materials, which are free of harmful substances and allow us to design energy‐efficient buildings. The aim is to create the framework for better implementation of ecological principles into existing technical specifications, legislation and building practice.

Development of the material-technological base in the field of architecture and  construction is progressing faster than in the previous periods. Based on the potential of new materials and technologies, it is possible to create advanced architecture and engineering building systems. Integration of advanced materials, technologies and construction systems creates a high-quality architectural construction with optimum performance in the presence as well as in the future. Nevertheless, improper application of high quality materials in the wrong environment may cause a defect.
