More on Biological Materials


TREE_TimberREengineered is an online platform curated by Gilbert Koskamp in collaboration with Pierre Jennenn & Max Salzberger. It shares wood architecture knowledge, design, research and resources, but also the ethos of wood and its ability to shape the built environment.

Gilbert has granted the right to repost here a keynote lecture entitled ‘Timber Structuralism’ by Prof. Felix Waechter of TU Darmstadt. Check out the BK-WOOD website for many more interesting lectures on timber!

Circularity for Educators

The platform is intended to provide with content on either circularity or pedagogy for and about circularity. It is one of the outcomes of the Circular Impulse Initiative (CII), a project intending to enhance the integration of circularity in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment education. The platform mainly aims to help tutors get better acquainted with circularity in the built environment by providing a series of resources on this subject that they can either view to get better informed or directly share with their students in class or online. A large number of the Faculty's professors and researchers have contributed substantially both in creating a coherent narrative for circularity in the built environment as well as further elaborating on different aspects of it. Besides this one, a new platform for interaction and direct exchange was also established in parallel that we call ‘Educators for Circularity‘. This one offers the opportunity for all of us to meet and share our experiences and learn from one another.
