ABSTRACT

According to research, global climate change is largely caused by excessive economic development and a consequence of CO2 emission and other gases as well as the production of heat caused by the urbanization of the world. It is estimated that 30% of the blame for causing global warming bears the building sector.
The architecture has therefore in this respect unusual tasks to perform. Firstly, it is the task of creating new buildings and conversion of existing buildings in a way to maximize reduction of CO2 emissions and reduction of energy consumption by the buildings. Secondly, to create a "reactive architectural response" to climate change adversely affecting the works and also protecting the increasing environmental risks, caused by the nature of disasters. The scale and nature of these risks is dependent on the geographical location, so the undertaken studies should relate to the regions of homogeneous risks structure.
The first task is global, and the application of research results can have a common character, whereas the second task is related to the regional occurrence of the risks of climate change. The article discusses the types of risks and their impact scale faced by the Central Europe regions due to climate change. Presents the localization and architectural issues, which should pay particular attention to the impact of climate change in this region. Improvements in the building code in relation to European Directives on climate change issues and their impact on the architecture of buildings has been presented. Conclusions indicate the need for further experimentation and elaboration of more durable and secure eco-reactive systems for architecture.
