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.
The BioMat team was presenting its work on renewable and ecological materials on the group-stand “Window Bioeconomy” at the Hannover Fair 2017. The presentation of renewable materials for architectural applications was more than successful and showed once more the high importance for the development of biomaterials in architecture.
