We have several running projects, that aim at implementing circular bio-based alternatives in our design education. Projects are run by students, within the course Cybernetics and Systems-oriented design or as master theses. Below an overview of process and results is provided.

More and more space has been covered; by tiles, concrete, asphalt. Fewer space is
left for nature, plants, animals, biodiversity in general.

One step, is to decrease the amount of surface covered by concrete, tiles and

In this assignment, students are asked to

for decreasing covered surfaces in the city of Kortrijk, more specifically, wij(k) van
de parken, by using biodesign.
These systems should self-sustain in time.

The students are reporting their progress on instagram: prototyping_circulair

a project in collaboration with Stad Kortrijk, wij(k) van de parken
In the period the students work on this by coincidence the flemish championship of "flipping tiles" takes place where cities compete each other to remove as much as possible tiles, concrete, ....
