Building for climate change - Global warming and its consequences

There is no longer any serious doubt: the climate we know now will be fundamentally different within just a few decades. For Central Europe the following predictions and scenarios are forecast: ? Rise in average annual temperature, accompanied by an ¬increase in the incidence of heat waves in summer and ¬milder winter temperatures; ? Shifts in precipitation patterns, towards more drought in ¬summer and more precipitation in winter; ? Increasing incidence of torrential rain; ? More winter storms; ? More frequent unusual precipitation or storm events, with hail, torrential rain and strong gusts. Just what impacts will these changes bring for architecture and the building trade? In their article in DETAIL Green, Peter Werner and Elke Chmella-Emrich answer this question.
