WHAT IS BUILDING BEYOND BORDERS?

Building Beyond Borders is an experiential programme committed to education and research on sustainable architectural processes and solutions worldwide.

Focus is on new ways of building, within a context of scarce resources, aiming for a lower environmental impact and increased comfort. When selecting and developing appropriate materials, construction methods, and climate-responsive design solutions, the broader scope of environmental aspects and the sociocultural context is taken into account, as well as technical requirements, and economical aspects of building.
