From the brainstorming and planning to the final realization, the construction of a property is a complex process. Numerous decisions have to be made that will last in the long term. Since these should not end in disappointment, both on an individual and communal level, architects bear an immense responsibility right from the start of planning a new building. The urban planning culture must be taken into account and economic, technical, legal and ecological requirements and challenges must be met.
Until a modern, basic architectural concept is available that makes owners, future residents or users happy, a lengthy design process is undergone. There is no universal pattern for this. In addition to individual ideas, technical and legal data regarding construction and statics, or framework factors such as the availability of various materials, different presentation methods play a central role in this process. They serve to visualize and support communication. Even more complexity in new building planning is currently created by factors such as climate protection, scarcity of resources and housing shortage, which significantly change the process and the previous approach.
