HFT Hemp Building Symposium 2024

On 11 and 12 October 2024, the Interior Architecture course, headed by Prof. Jens Betha, will be hosting the first "HFT Hemp Building Symposium".

The two-day symposium presents the oldest cultivated plant in the world and is aimed at architects, interior designers, property developers and anyone interested in the topic of "building with hemp". Whether in combination with lime, mushroom mycelium or geopolymer - the natural building material hemp combines a variety of properties.

The focus of the symposium will be on working with hemp hurds, whereby both basic and specialist knowledge will be passed on. After a theoretical discourse on the first day, the practical application of different construction methods will be demonstrated on the second day.

The Hemp Building Symposium is organised by the Interior Architecture course at the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Architecture and Design. The initiator is Prof. Jens Betha, who has been working on the topic for several years as head of the laboratory for natural building materials and collaborates with experts from Central Europe.

The event is recognised by both the Chamber of Architects and the Baden-Württemberg Chamber of Engineers with continuing education points. The event is free for students.

You will find more information on the website soon.
