The DesignBuildXchange fosters multinational cooperation and promotes research related to DesignBuild activities. DesignBuild takes students from their studio desks into the physical world of human interactions, allowing them to be physically involved in the materialization of their designs for the common good. The dbXchange.eu web platform provides tools for communication, collaboration and the exchange of scientific, practice related, socially relevant, sustainable and interdisciplinary knowledge.
The network aims to become a lively and growing association, representing DesignBuild initiatives at Institutes of Higher Education and providing a corporate identity towards national and international institutions.
designbuildXchange is a network and an online platform dedicated to all stakeholders involved in academic DesignBuild projects
