Building Urban Intelligent Living Design Solutions (BUILD Solutions) set up an experimental transdisciplinary educational model focused on learning-by-doing that brought together the disciplines of biology, design, and business. Students, teachers, researchers, and businesses collaborated to develop intelligent living solutions to bring them to the market. This was achieved through the investigation of biological systems, the creation of smart design prototypes, business plans, the development of start-ups, and the collaboration with accelerators.
This book compiles the BUILD Solutions experience with ideas shared by professionals in the fields of biology, design and business, more specifically on the importance of transdisciplinarity.
Building Urban Intelligent Living Design Solutions (BUILDs) project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and developed by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia – IAAC- (Spain), Université de Lorraine -UL- (France), Vienna University of Economics and Business -WU- (Austria), Ersilia Foundation (Spain), ECONICK (France), Plant-e (Netherlands), City Facilitators -CF- (Denmark), and GreenTech Challenge -GTC- (Denmark).
