The Natural Building Lab and the Habitat Unit of the TU Berlin are pleased to announce a Call for Contributions as one of the participating universities as Partners in the context of the Pop-Up Campus Aachen in the summer semester 2022. Integrated into the discourse on building in the existing fabric, a programmatic focus will be on approaches and processes of circular building, the handling of recyclable materials and constructions with renewable or natural materials, as well as research on urban and regional questions on commodity and material cycles.


On the one hand, the experimental and future-oriented approaches of students will be discussed, as well as the challenges and opportunities of research and methodology in architectural teaching. The program will take place at the TU Berlin as part of the international conference on “sbe22 berlin - sustainable built environment within planetary boundaries” and will enable the students of the Pop-Up Campus to exchange ideas with international scientists and present their projects. The Students Conference at the TU Berlin will be accompanied by a workshop on “Educational Perspective on Research and teaching in Architecture” in Aachen as part of the Pop-Up Campus program.


For this Student Conference, we cordially invite Students throughout Germany, with this special focus on the Pop-Up Campus partner universities to submit entries by May 22th 2022. Students can apply with their current semester project or with a short abstract and complementary visuals. A group of faculty and students will review the submissions and invite a number of projects for the conference in Berlin in September.

If you are interested in presenting your work, please submit your abstract of 200 - 250 words in English or German electronically via the ConfTool at:

Information on acceptance of abstracts and preparation of full papers will be announced by the end of June 2022.

All abstracts will be reviewed by a scientific committee of professors, researchers and students. After the Full Paper Review the selected projects will be presented at the conference in the form of oral presentations or posters at sbe22 Berlin D-A-CH conference at TU Berlin in September 2022.
