Research Regenerative City and Infrastructure

Regenerative City and Infrastructue is a programme line of Biobased Creations in collaboration with the many partners within the Embassy of Circular & Biobased Building. The Embassy launched this programme because bringing together and depicting a number of sustainable trends can make even more impact in the acceleration towards sustainable construction and infrastructure. For instance, for several years we have seen a huge growth in the production and application of bio-based materials.

With pavilions such as The Growing Pavilion and The Exploded View and installations such as The Nature Building Kit, the Embassy has also strongly contributed to this in recent years. In addition, more and more knowledge is being shared about techniques and applications for nature-inclusive building and design. There is also finally a sector-wide recognition that at the current pace of innovation, we will never be able to meet the Paris targets in CO2 and nitrogen reduction and in humidity, biodiversity and circularity. So we need to think and design even smarter, more radical, greener and thus regenerative. Therefore, in the coming years, we will unite representatives from construction, infrastructure, policy, nature, water, agriculture and design to explore what is currently possible and what we could achieve together.

Regenerative means giving back to nature more than you take. Especially in combining nature-inclusive design with biobased materials, we see huge potential to turn construction and infrastructure from nature-polluting to giving back to nature.

In the recent research publication, Embassy presents some 20 projects that serve as examples of what is already happening in Western Europe in the field of regenerative roofs, facades, soil and infrastructure. We have deliberately chosen parties willing to share their information with us and to work with ourselves. The aim of this publication is mainly to inspire and start a conversation about which innovations we want to develop further in the programme.
