In the Mediterranean area there are ruins of buildings from around 6000 BC. The basic form of a building was already created in Ancient Greece and in the arches of the Roman Empire.

Stone, brick and wood were the most common building materials in medieval Europe. In the 1800s more and more people moved to towns where they built factories and blocks of flats. At the end of the 1800s skeleton construction technology and the lift contributed to the building of skyscrapers. The 1900s were marked by large scale but simple buildings.

Since the 1990s, computers have created advanced forms of construction. But the real challenge for the future is to construct environmentally friendly and energy saving buildings.
