Being involved in education and research we believe in the potential of the inspiring energy that workshops and 1:1 mock-up buildings generate for young and developing architects, designers and engineers. Nothing exceeds the experience of seeing one’s own design physically developing and participating in the materialization. All aesthetic, special and technical performances of the design can be experienced and evaluated, problems in the realization become apparent and guide toward a better understanding of the process and the technology.

The efnMOBIL program  “emerging envelope” will be a traveling workshop during the years 2013 till 2016 –  being active in several locations in Europe and provide the facility to experiment, build and evaluate building envelope constructions.
