Abstract. The paper describes the general contents of the international patent (PCT / IB2013 / 000830) of the Polytechnic of Bari on the building construction system "Nexus: Earthquake-proof Self-supporting "dry" construction system composed by environmentally sustainable, stratified and self-clinching blocks". This block will be capable, like a metal net, of ensuring to the wall high structural performance up to make earthquake-proof wall in such a way as to not affect the thermal and acoustic performance. The characteristics of the block transversely to the wall are freed from the structural performance for which it is possible to realize a stratification that optimizes the heat attenuation and the thermal mass, the transport properties of moist air and the ability to reduce sound transmission. The flexibility allows to create blocks that enhance the performance as a function of the thermal characteristics, moisture and acoustic field around the building.
