The Exploded View Beyond Building

You build a whole world if you build biobased

The Exploded View Beyond Building is an installation of a full-size home that is made entirely of biobased materials, circular construction methods and stories about the changing value chain of which it is part. 

Move through, touch, feel and smell the future of living as our storytelling installation guides you through the cycle of circular and biobased construction and explains how we can change more than just the construction sector, if we design and build differently. The project explores how building biobased homes can lead to system changes in Health, Agriculture, Neighbourhoods of the future and Value chains. 

The Exploded View Beyond Building demonstrates a lot is already possible, affordable and manageable, that it is healthier for people and the world and that it is part of a much larger chain as an alternative to the current systems built on pollution and depletion. The project calls  you- all of you- public, policy, construction and agriculture sectors to redirect the sustainability conversation from “is this possible?” towards “how are we going to do this together?”

Join us to rethink: what has and deserves real value.
