Slow Architecture is building a building slowly and gradually as opposed to building it all at once. The resulting building usually is far more cost efficient than that of a traditional building. Governments and companies can use this building method to cut down on costs.
The term Slow Architecture is also used in a broader context, not limited to one building. 'The use of the characteristics of the existing will maintain a strong bond between a building, its environment and society. The present environment is the result of a string of aspects that together keep the process alive of which the present is the result.
The use of the context will make it possible to maintain local traditions in building and create unique images. Not to preserve history, but to give new developments a place in a continuous proceeding process.'
