Bio-based building envelops - challenges and perspectives

Anna Sandak; Jakub Sandak

The recently observed tendency for development of sustainable structures and increasing environmental consciousness leads to reactivation of bio-architecture as an alternative to other construction materials. Very often, focus on sustain- able construction principles requires the use of local materials and products. In this perspective, environmentally friendly materials originating from plants or animals are of great interest to architects. Due to their versatile character, biobased materials enable creation of buildings adapted to any local context. Bio-based materials give an impression of being suitable for any context, even if they have different forms or patterns. Therefore, buildings that are made of natural materials are perceived as ho-nest and sincere. This presentation will describe the key challenges regarding possible innovations in the bio-based building sector from the perspective of development in materials science and design concepts as well as tools and services for improved facade management.
