Multi-,trans- and inter-disciplinarity, essential conditions for the sustainable development of human habitat

Alexandru-Ionuţ Petrişor

Rezumat/Abstract. While the hierarchy of inter-, trans- and multi-disciplinarity is not commonly agreed upon, the vast majority of authors emphasize the utility of integrating to more or lesser extent different disciplines in research. The paper analyzes the particular case of the disciplines dealing with the design of human habitat, in order to prove that a supra-disciplinary approach is an essential condition for a sustainable output. The results indicate that, in addition to the need for crossing disciplinary borders, a multi-scale approach is also required.
