Reflection Green Façade Hackathon

Urbanisation and climate change call for new solutions to maintain and improve the quality of life in our cities. But growth of cities and nature often contradicts. Even though public green space has a positive effect on biodiversity, climate, wellness and air quality. How can we redesign façades in a greener way to enhance the health and support the growth of our future urban communities?

During Dutch Design Week , BlueCity and BlueCity Lab organize a Green Façade Hackathon together with spatial innovation collective Scape Agency for the Biobased and Circular Embassy. During this week, a multidisciplinary group of designers, biologists, architects, gardeners, artists, horticulturalists and entrepreneurs will be working us in this to experiment how we can design green into practice. Today we speak with Nienke Binnendijk, director of BlueCity Lab and one of the initiators about the results of Hackathon.

About BlueCity Lab
BlueCity Lab is a biocircular playground for pioneers located in the heart of BlueCity. We support the transition to a biocircular economy by making work and lab space available for a growing group of pioneers. Bioniers give examples of a regenerative economy within the planetary boundaries by doing and experimenting.

About BlueCity

Since 2015, BlueCity has developed fitself rom an empty swimming pool to the hub of the circular economy in the city and the region. Anno 2020, BlueCity is a model city for the circular economy, where enterprising minds meet and develop concrete action perspectives; whether it concerns increasing your positive impact, living zero waste or developing a future-proof material.
