mission statement

"We're all sitting on one bullet and nobody can jump off it."
(U. Merbold, German astronaut and physicist)

Only if we know the natural material wood well will we be able to use it excellently. Excellent use means attractive design, safe construction, long-term use, economical use of primary energy and materials, operation and dismantling, and, if possible, intensive use of domestic wood reserves.

Only when at least the majority of the aforementioned requirements have been met does a building earn the title of sustainable*. Planners and architects therefore bear a significant share of the responsibility for saving our endangered planet.

* The term sustainability comes from the Saxon forestry master C.v. Carlowitz from 1713. Sustainability is given when no more is taken from a material cycle than added.
