The Bio-based Materials and Materials Cycles in Architecture Group (BioMat) was founded by Prof. Dr.-Ing Hanaa Dahy in 2016 at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning of the University of Stuttgart, followed by the opening of a second branch in 2022 at the Institute of Planning in the Technical Faculty of IT and Design (TECH) of the Aalborg University, Copenhagen Campus.
Our goal at BioMat is to explore innovative solutions for future sustainable Architecture. 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.
Jun.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hanaa Dahy published an article about the fabrication, design and customized applicatications of Biocomposites based on annuarl renewable fibres and biopolymers. The understanding of fabrication processes with various polymers is explained, as well as the different design strategies and possibilites.
