Lecture DGNB

On the 18th of November Prof. Dahy gave a lecture at a prestige workshop on “Timber Construction/Bioeconomy” organized by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen: DGNB eV.


“Interlock” proposes a modular biocomposite structure with a simple interlocking joint as the main assembly aspect, emphasizing the reusability of such modules, and the ease of erecting the structure with minimal means.
This project is meant as an investigative method towards alternative building methods and materials, being part of the ongoing BIOMAT research into natural, recyclable, low-cost, CO2-neutral materials. It is supposed to devise a design and building strategy that encompasses the principles of “cradle to cradle” life cycles in the built environment, proposing a holistic approach to bio-inspired design, accentuating the main advantages of these alternative methods in contrast to traditional building processes.
