The lecture will highlight new visions for dealing with alternative bio-based materials in the form of (Biocomposites) in architecture and the building industry. The lecturer will showcase current industrial projects that the speaker (Prof. Dahy) is leading and how this influenced the way of making new vision for future sustainable architecture and accordingly the architectural design scenarios and applications. Examples from both research and teaching will be given and thoroughly analysed. Built up mock-ups in 1:1 scales with new developed materials, including bio-based and smart materials, will be shown and discussed. At the end, a discussion with be opened about how architecture of the near future should be like in academy and in practice. In addition, discussions including how materialisation and digitalisation have both affected this ‘new’ architecture will take place. Furthermore, methods of preparing future architects for those challenges in the future building industry will be highlighted.
