Abstract:
This paper considers an issue of eco-sustainable architecture development. It reviews an opportunity of constructing a new type of large-span translucent buildings and structures, capable of not only expanding significantly the reach of comfortable and safe human environment but also improving liveability of our cities. A discussion is open regarding the features and properties of the new architecture that, in the author’s opinion, will soon make our cities more environmentally friendly, rendering greater energy efficiency and general attractiveness.

Eco Sustainable Architecture of the Future: Large-Span Translucent Buildings and Structures

At all times, people have strived to achieve safety and protection against a great number of unfavorable impacts and threats of the environment. Heat and cold, rain and wind, predators and savages, have always posed challenges to the peaceful life of man.  From the earliest times, people have built shelters, thus creating an artificial habitat protecting them from the aggressive world outside, which added in the comfort and security desired.  Thus, architecture, from its origin through all its history, has served as a magnificent instrument for the creative efforts of man, utilizing the technology available and enjoying the aesthetic views existing in the society to respond to these vital needs of human life.   

Now has come a wondrous epoch of construction technology! Now is the time that nearly any of conceivable and most daring fantasies of architectural mind can be realized. Today, a modern architect implementing a complicated project tends to be often limited by mere considerations of utility, public demands, and time and financial constraints, rather than by a lack of technologies available for a large-scale project of structural complexity. Furthermore, the principles of booming sustainable development and green building are giving rise to eco-friendly sustainable designs.
