Circular Bridge Featured in Magazine “Forschung Leben”

The high-tech bridge constructed with Flax Fibre in Almere(NL) is an example of modern innovation in bridge construction. Rather than using conventional material such as wood or concrete and steel, the bio-based material provides an impetus to how alternative, biomass-based and renewable resource can be used in the construction industry. It provides a path towards solving the major challenges such as high CO2 emission and high energy consumption in the manufacturing of building material.

November talk at University of East London

In the lecture, entitled ‘Towards Industrialised Architecture’ Hanaa Dahy shared both her own projects and current projects by BioMat students. She opened with an introduction to the organisation, which accommodates internal and external PhD students, and covers biometrics, smart materials and design and fabrication systems, to explore the potential applications of bio-based materials in sustainable architecture.
