Marina Mihaila, Cristian Banica


Rezumat/Abstract. Rewriting the definitions and the importance of sustainability presents an interesting evolution in architectural field, starting with vernacular examples, noting the buildings that written the history of the consecrated sustainability, but also directions barely visible in present that appear to represent innovative saving solutions for the changing manifest or possible climatic future. The discovery of few principle methods for architecture would be a first point to consider when evaluating the built environment. The important points to achieve in evaluations and design (inclusively imaginary) may refer to: physical, energy, material and financial efforts to build, maintain and use architecture, life time of the building, esthetic value of sustainability and its costs, relation with natural, urban, climatic environment – momentary but also in change, policies and relation with energetic infrastructure – local and regional, and not least of synthetic education based on the reflex of enduring architecture sustainable valences, recoverable in energetic balance and climate (interior and exterior) of the building as a measure of architectural conscience and responsibility.
