Materials as a Design Tool
The Bio-based Materials and Materials Cycles in the Building Industry in Copenhagen (BioMat@Copenhagen) is founded in 2022 at the Institute of Planning in the Technical Faculty of IT and Design (TECH) of the Aalborg University, Copenhagen Campus. BioMat@Copenhagen was established after the success of the BioMat lab initiation in Stuttgart, Germany since 2016.
BioMat@Copenhagen aims at exploring innovative solutions for future sustainable Architecture and the Building Industry. The design philosophy of BioMat sees material properties as a design tool, merging the fields of Material Research, Architectural Design, and Digital Fabrication to create feasible sustainable applications for the built environment.
