Closing Event – Sustainable Bio & Waste Resources for Construction (SB&WRC)

Date:    Time: 17:30-19:30   Location:

Thursday 23rd May | 17:30-19:30 | ASBP/Cullinan Studio at the Foundry, 5 Baldwin Terrace, London N1 7RU

For the past two years, ASBP has been a partner in the Sustainable Bio & Waste Resources for Construction (SB&WRC) project with a number of leading institutions from both sides of the Channel, including lead partner Nomadeis. The aim of the project is to develop prototype construction materials from agricultural by-products (wheat straw and maize pith) and recycled waste (polyester duvets and oyster shells).

The project comes to a close this summer and ASBP are pleased to host an evening closing event to showcase the innovative work of our French and English partners. The event will be co-hosted with award-winning architects Cullinan Studio at our shared office in Islington, London and will feature short talks and a Q&A session with project partners from University of Brighton, University of Bath and Nomadeis.
