There are still vast areas of the world that are almost untouched by human activity. There is need to make access to these regions with special new structures and there is also a need to have structures that can be quickly assembled in disaster areas. We also have need to explore the limitless expanse of outer space. After the preparatory exploration of such places is initiated it will be necessary to call upon what will here be shown as a totally new and different sub- discipline of civil engineering called Hedratecture.
