About "Baubiologie" (Building Biology)
Homes or dwellings can be seen as an organism. The term third skin accurately describes the intimate relationship between humans and their living space. It illustrates vividly how closely we are interrelated with our living environment and also in how many ways we are dependent on it.
Building biology is defined as the study of the holistic interrelationships between humans and their living environment.
The "holistic" approach is key here. Only a comprehensive integration and application of all relevant knowledge can solve our current problems.
The following table illustrates the rich and spiritual meaning of the term building biology as can be easily recognized by the meaning of its individual words.
All fields of biology (living organism) and building (living environment) interact with each other under the leadership of logos (gr. reason).
Building biology is a branch of science, which is biologically and culturally oriented. It is not a narrow special subject, but rather an interdisciplinary one.
The spiritual superstructure puts humans and culture back into the center of all building and settling activities. When the biological principle required to satisfy fundamental living conditions is missing, the culture and art of building will perish and the entire process of building will become banal, soulless, inhumane, and irresponsible. Current developments in construction and design confirm very clearly how humans waste away and fall sick in their mind, body and soul under such conditions.
Just as the Greek syllables logos (reason), arch (beginning) and ur (original) are related to one another, so are also the terms building biology, architecture and culture. The origin and the unity of all life as well as the basic principle of creation find their expression therein. In this sense, architects are truly original authors or creators.
