Architecture and construction shape our lives, our environment and our culture. Our buildings give us a home, they protect us from the elements, but construction has a significant impact on the environment and our surroundings.

The massive use of raw materials and CO2 emissions generated during the production and operation requires a rethink in planning and construction industry practices. Additive manufacturing at the large scale enables solutions for material efficient buildings with improved performance, and bespoke design.

Needs and ideas can be entered on our ideas platform before the workshop. For more information on the campaign and the platform, please visit
