Welcome to
The Embassy of Circular & Biobased Building

Sometimes it feels like an impasse: the enormous climate challenge on the one hand and the vast construction task on the other. As an Embassy, we take up this challenge. We investigate the possibilities of new biobased materials with a high design quality and circular methods such as detachability, modularity and urban mining. With the aim of more unique, truly sustainable, life-course-proof homes.

Through story and imagination, we – designers, entrepreneurs, researchers, and policymakers – carry you along our research journey. The research and storytelling installation “The Exploded View” shows how we want to radically rethink the realization of a home. Through (online) meetings, articles, podcasts, and videos, we share with you what we have discovered, but also what we don’t yet know. We showcase all the possibilities, as well as weaknesses. And we invite you to think together with us and to participate.

Dutch Design Week is an important milestone for us, but not the final destination. Our research into the possibilities of biobased and circular design, construction, and living will continue long afterward. With The Exploded View, we will be traveling to various construction fairs and design festivals. Through this dialogue, we are actively searching for answers to a broad range of questions: what are the qualities of biobased materials in relation to health? What options do circular methodologies offer for current and for future construction? What impact will the housing needs of the tomorrow have on modular construction? How can smart design contribute to better detachability and reuse of materials? And what are the business models that could make this new way of building and living possible?

Do you want to think along and to join us on this journey? Then visit us during DDW 2020 in Eindhoven or online.
