ETH Winter School 2016 – Application open

Winter School Jan16

The E4D winter school 2016 aims to develop an integrated vision to a global challenge of today’s construction industry. The programme revolves around the so-far untapped resource desert sand and the question of how to activate its potential as an alternative building material for future cities. Invited experts from around the world will share their knowledge and give insights in their field of research. Participants will not only learn the theoretic background of this resource but experiment with current and future technologies to transform desert sand. Through three workshops (i) bio-cementation, (ii) sintering and (iii) 3D printing, the acquired knowledge will be tested and applied.

The E4D Winter School 2016 is organised in collaboration with ETH Global and the TU Berlin Campus in El Gouna, Egypt.
