Exploded View Beyond Building

  • Architecture
  • Innovation

Experience the house of the future! This entire house consists of natural materials. Each room has its own story. Here you will discover new possibilities for sustainable building and living: a true circular environment. In the Floriade park you will find the pavilion opposite of the Natural Pavilion. Both are part of the Dutch Innovation Experience.

Floriade Expo 2022 is officially closed

Floriade Expo 2022 was open from 14 April to 9 October. The Expo has since closed; the Floriade site is now being further developed into the new green city district Hortus.

Natural building and living

The Exploded View Beyond Building is a fascinating exhibition about the living environment of the future – in the form of a house. There are all kinds of natural and circular materials available in large quantities, yet they are rarely used. Think for example of seaweed, funghi and waste. In this house, you can see how more than 100 of these natural materials can be used. Come and see what a circular future might look like.

A hundred biobased materials

This house consists entirely of natural materials, such as: laminate made from bulrush, insulation made from hemp, tiles made from bacteria, and ceilings of seaweed.

Making it happen together

The creators invite you to shift the conversation on sustainability from "is this possible?" to "how are we going to get it done together?"


This project is the result of a collaboration of and research by builders, producers, farmers, scientists, designers, authorities, knowledge institutes, storytellers and artists.

Biobased building your house is building a sustainable living environment for everyone
