We are all on the verge of a transition to a world in which we want and need to be less dependent on fossil raw materials. In the transition to this world, we aim for an economy that runs on biomass as a raw material. In order to take a good step in the direction of biobased life, biobased construction is very important.

Today, many new techniques exist to build or renovate energy-neutral and biobased materials. In this MOOC Biobased Construction, you learn to apply the latest biobased materials in new construction and renovation. Your assignment is to design a cottage, tiny house or a cabin with only biobased materials. You learn how to process the different materials in the roof, the façade, the floor, in all parts of the house. This MOOC is specially written for college students in their first and second year of architecture and construction and professionals.
