The exhibition

Great architects, both past and present, have continuously pushed the boundaries in respect to structure, space, techniques and materials.

From the ‘beton brute’ (bare concrete) of Le Corbusier, to Mies van der Rohe, renowned for pioneering the extensive use of glass in buildings.

From Shigeru Ban with his work with recycled cardboard and wooden innovations, to Norman Foster with his impressive high-tech steel tension structures.

We are now facing an exciting new era, in which digital manufacturing and parametric design can be executed in a diversity of materials.

The development of sustainable materials stimulates the creation of buildings with a “material passport”, and encourages the appetite for new renewable and biobased material sources.

This exhibition presents the most inspiring, exciting and remarkable materials on the market. Tiles that collect rain, pillars made from recycled leather, luminous ceramic cladding, wooden textile room dividers and curtains.

Imagine a floor made from coffee, 3D printed wood, Facades made of 100% recycled plastic, bricks made from peat, and a facade made out of aubergines. Come to see these incredible materials, and be inspired to create the Great Architecture of tomorrow.
