Instead of the archaic building methods and materials of the past 5,000 years, wood-stick or brick construction, we have new possibilities allowing for marine construction, outer space, climate extremes and other design problems. This implies a whole evolution of structures, pneumatic, geodesic, minimal surface, and fabric systems, all looked at in terms of energy conservation.
