New Certificate Course: Designing for Sustainability

What can professionals in architecture learn today to contribute to a sustainable tomorrow? The answer can be found in our new hands-on Certificate Course "Designing for Sustainability"!

This course is designed for architects and civil engineers who want to develop the latest skills in sustainable construction using natural materials and green building techniques.

Develop new skills and gain industry-specific knowledge

  • Learn from professionals, researchers and best practice examples implemented in the industry today
  • Gain insights into the latest developments and advances in sustainable building materials, architectural experimentation, architectural reuse and passive solutions
  • Gain hands-on experience during a four-day on-site workshop at Hoogcruts Monastery
  • Expand your hands-on and applicable knowledge of sustainable building

Hands-on Workshop at Hoogcruts Monastery

The Het Limburgs Landschap Foundation actively supports the sustainable transition of the former Hoogcruts monastery, transforming it into a euregional hub for building cultures, sustainable practices, and an incubator for arts and crafts. This location will serve as an ideal paradigm of sustainability. In partnership with local stakeholders and other schools of architecture, we are conducting a series of practical experiments involving natural and recycled materials, both in practice and theory, through projects, seminars, and summer schools.
