BUILDING BEYOND BORDERS

LEARNING FOR, FROM AND WITH THE WORLD

Building Beyond Borders is a cross border learning platform to exchange knowledge, skills and visions on bioclimatic design and local building materials

With its postgraduate certificate, hands-on workshops, bi-annual fall symposium, master design studio, research and internships, Building Beyond Borders offers a wide variety of learning moments to students, professionals and other interested.

International collaboration to enhance knowledge of bioclimatic design and regenerative building materials and to empower skills to build with a low environmental impact is key to this platform.

Initiated by the faculty of Architecture and Arts, Hasselt University's unique pedagogical approach and civic ambition, make the perfect home for Building Beyond Borders.
