Invitation to our webinar sessions "Reinventing the Building Sector: Resources in Architecture"

Comprehensive and holistic resource and climate protection is becoming more and more important in the building sector. A shift from pure energy savings during the usage phase of a building towards a resource efficient and circular construction industry along the whole lifecycle of a building needs a fundamental rethinking. The transition towards a ‘circular economy’ reduces CO2 emissions, raw material consumption as well as primary energy consumption in the construction sector to a minimum. Some planners have already taken that path and implemented circularity aspects in their building projects which serve as a role model for a new building culture. The ReBAU project is planning a digital excursion to visit some buildings which are made of renewable, reused and recyclable materials in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

We are glad if you join us on that journey:


04.02.21 I 17.30 – 18.45
Reinventing the Region: Building with local, renewable raw materials (in German)
Buildings made of renewable raw materials such as wood are among the oldest construction methods and have the advantage that they save CO2 emissions, create a healthy indoor climate and, due to the local availability of their natural materials, prevent global conflicts such as those over fossile fuels.

  • Schmuttertal Gymnasium (Diedorf), HK Architekten / Florian Nagler Architekten, presentation by: Informationsverein Holz e.V.

‘Reinventing the Present: Urban Mining in the Netherlands and Belgium’ (in English)
We can find countless materials in our cites, their recovery is becoming increasingly attractive. “Urban Mining” offers a change of perspective: the built environment and its secondary raw material supply offer opportunieties to be reused or recycled.

  • Superlocal (Kerkrade), Maurer United
  • Villa Welpeloo (Enschede) & Kringloop Zuid (Maastricht), Superuse Studios
  • dnA House (Asse), BLAF Architecten


04.03.21 I 17.30 – 18.45
‘Reinventing the Future: Design for disassembly’ (in English with German translation)
Designing buildings in such a way, that they can be disassembled into individual components at the end of a buildings life cycle and reused, hence producing no waste, is the main principe of “Design for Disassembly”.
