Novo-Domus

Ongoing collaboration with Amsterdam based inventor and artist, Lode Bruins.

Combining a clay solution with cellulose cardboard or 'sand with plant' resulted in a water- and fire resistent building material.

Bruins' experience in the aerospace industry with lightweight constructions resulted in a new shelter concept with innovative properties.

Novo-Domus is a foldable refugee shelter concept. It is lightweight, fire resistent, biodegradable, insulating and modular.

The concept is in development and has started with a focus on the technical aspects of the design. Besides further development in this direction, involving stakeholders and experts from different contexts will help to develop on social, cultural and practical subjects.
