Background DesignBuild projects

DesignBuild-Studio are a teaching and research model offering students the unique opportunity to
experience the different stages of a small, but real building project: from the initial design sketch to the
development of models and detailed drawings, all the way through the actual construction process to
completion of the built result.

Apart from hands-on building experience the students also learn how to deal with the budget, schedule and
unexpected obstacles, as well as to work in collaboration with others and communicate with real clients,
local authorities and material suppliers.

DesignBuild Projects are components of higher education in the field of built environment that allow
students to be physically involved in the materialisation of their designs. It takes students from their studio
desks into the physical world of human interactions and construction.

dbXchange Network and Host

The dbXchange platform and network addresses projects in the framework of academic education
with an emphasis on the built environment. The main aims of the platform are to exchange

DesignBuild methodology.

The platform provides tools for supporting DesignBuild project workflows as well as access to
detailed information about the projects themselves, their related networks and
stakeholders.
