Welcome to
The Embassy of Circular & Biobased Building

The Embassy of Circular & Biobased Building focuses on challenges that face the world today: how can we guarantee that everyone in the Netherlands has a place to live in the near future, and ensure these buildings also achieve the climate objectives by being energy-efficient, and by being designed and built bio-based and emission-friendly?

This Embassy comprises ​​partners who are working on this future scenario through practical design assignments and by exploring new approaches. The key questions are: how can we scale, what does a new circular construction chain look like and which new design language is associated with using biobased building materials? At Dutch Design Week 2019 the Embassy showed temporary architecture, which offered inspiration and context.

Biobasecamp, a design by Ketelhuisplein art director Marco Vermeulen, showed how wood can be used to build in an eco-positive way. In the Growing Pavilion, a pavilion designed by Company New Heroes, new and experimental biobased materials were investigated by applying them in the pavilion.
