Swissbau Focus – «Technology to the rescue?»

Each edition of Swissbau Focus is now centred around a specific theme. For 2016, this is «Technology to the rescue?». New technical equipment and the new technologies that are used in construction work in Switzerland, and also technically-oriented systems, wield a great deal of power. They are credited with being able to make their mark on the future – and particularly on building – in both a creative and rational manner. People rely on them. Yet, at the same time, technology imposes specifications, gives rise to requirements, places constraints on those who are building and restricts freedom and creativity. To what extent is technology coming to our rescue – and where do we need to rescue ourselves from technology?
