History of Industrialisation in Construction
Konrad Wachsmann is well known as one of the most influential representatives of industrial construction. Being aware of a wide range of historic knowledge, he showed that research regarding process-orientated construction and production played a big role concerning the socially defining developments. Konrad Wachsmann showed the potential of applying industrial methods to construction projects by designing building components for mechanized and automated production and its on-site joining. The newly available industrial possibilities have also had a great influence on the design. In the context of the Master Course Advanced Construction and Building Technology the historic classification of constructional conditions provides an important reference framework for the transfer of contemporary processthinking onto future advanced constructive tasks.
