How can we make building more environmentally friendly with the help of sustainable building materials?


Architects, building materials experts and manufacturers will explore this question in the web seminar series "Building Materials of the Future - How Classics and Newcomers are Changing Building Sustainably".
The six web seminars will take place in German and English from 16 April to 8 July 2021.

Hardly any other topic is as associated with the idea of the future as construction. At the same time, energy consumption and resource use in construction are anything but sustainable: Half of the total energy consumption is already used up when moving into a conventional new building, if a 50-year operating life is assumed. 50 percent of the total waste produced in Germany is construction and demolition material.

With the natureplus web seminar series "Building Materials of the Future", we take a look at the building materials of tomorrow. Building materials of the future must provide a holistic answer to the question of sustainability: they should be durable, produced with the least possible use of energy and raw materials, reusable or recyclable to a high standard, and free of harmful substances.

Together with experts from the scientific community, we will shed light on versatile materials and innovative building product solutions. Architects will show with concrete application examples how climate and resource-friendly and thus sustainable building can already be done today. In addition to wood, brick and clay as versatile "classics", fascinating "newcomers" such as bamboo, secondary building materials and other surprising building materials will be discussed. Each web seminar is dedicated in detail to one of these building materials. Three dates will be held in German and three in English.

The web seminar series starts on 16 April with a kick-off lecture on wood, the conventional and also promising building material for the future. Ludger Dederich, architect and professor at the Hochschule für Forstwirtschaft Rottenburg (HFR), will introduce the topic with a keynote on the "Timber Construction Offensive Europe". 

This is followed by 5 web seminars on the building materials:

30 April: Bricks – A traditional player shaping the future? (English)
21 May:  Lehm – Kann der älteste Baustoff die Bauindustrie nachhaltig verändern? (German)
04 June: Building with bamboo - a building material suitable for the masses? (English)
18 June: Sekundäre Baustoffe - Die Zukunft des Bauens? (German)
08 July: Who would have thought this? - Surprising building materials. (English)
