12-2021 OpenBi0n II – Explorations in biological- and low-impact building techniques

The one-day conference Down to Earth, held at Färgfabriken in Stockholm and organised by AES Studio, synthesized the six-year-long collaboration of the BIØN network. The purpose of the conference was two-part. First, to share the knowledge gained within the network and showcase the 11 built prototypes and learnings from this collaborative process. The second focus was to use the BIØN network as a point of departure to engage in a wider discussion of how the architectural and construction industry can reach the 2030 goals, what is needed to transform the industry and speculate on new ways of working.
