The Exploded View Materials & Methods — © Nanno Simonis + Eric Melander

The Exploded View stands for a radical new look at the realization of a home: pulling apart and dissecting the endless number of applications found in a house, in order to rebuild them using circular methods and biobased materials.

The Exploded View Materials & Methods

The Exploded View is also showcasing the endless, potential material streams available that are not yet being used in the construction world. For example, material streams from food, textiles, sewage water, buildings or even from our own living environment. Through this experimental design, we share our research towards materials that can keep the production circle as small and as efficient as possible.

Above all, The Exploded View is a ‘live research’ and ‘storytelling’ installation. It is a model of a detached house in which we display various biobased materials and circular methods side by side. Through both the model and the life-size blueprint, we show all that we have discovered, as well as the parts that we are still missing—the question marks. We will be discussing all of its qualities as well as its weak points. This way, we invite everyone to think and act together with us. Because there is so much knowledge available, there is not one right method or solution for sustainable construction. Will you join us on this journey?

About Biobased Creations

Biobased Creations by New Heroes are experimental projects that model existing and future possibilities and celebrate the wonderful beauty and impact of biobased materials in a circular society. Our storytelling installations, exhibitions, lectures and programs function as ongoing research and discussion pieces, also exhibiting the unknowns. With our creations we want to redirect the sustainability conversation from “is this possible?” towards “how are we going to do this together?”
