Abstract

• The contribution/paper deals flrstly with the need of a framing condition of human(e)- ecologically-sound planning in order to reach a responsible way to build towards a Sustainable Development. • Within this frame it is secondly important to respect the local circumstances concerning all kinds of resources and even to strive for an ideal and balanced handling, while housing is produced and while housing is under construction as well as during the process of use. • The focus of the contribution/paper will thirdly deal with the following main items: 1st Eight rules according eight essential components (8CO) are developed in order to help the conceptualisation of mainly the part of Building Technology of housing projects and housing objects on the various scales. They will be explained. 2nd By means of illustrations it will be shown how housing in the past, present and especially in the future can get shape in order to fulfill the demands for Sustainable Building. • In a fourth chapter we will conclude with some insights, ideas, thoughts and proposals how to come also to Environmentally-Sound Eastern European EcoHousing again, after a previous tradition in this was disturbed by a onesided consumption- and profit orientated but for health and environment disastrous period.
