Welcome back to the DBXchange Platform

After a forced pause due to technical issues, we are very happy, to welcome you back to the designbuildXchange platform.

DesignBuild takes students from their studio desks into the physical world of human interactions and construction.

On this platform you can exchange information about DesignBuild activities, promote your projects, organisations and your own expertise, initiate collaboration, look for support, find answers to questions about pedagogy, logistics, liabilities, funding and construction.

We welcome teachers in academic and non-academic education, students, researchers, planners, clients and users, politicians, entrepreneurs, donors, craftsmen and symathisers to get involved.

See what's new:

The INSIGH section, presenting findings, conclusions, research results, presentations and much more.
