Promopaglia is pleased to invite all the ESBA Community to the next ESBG, which will take place in Venice – Terminal 103 from June 15th to June 19th 2017.
The next ESBG consist of hands-on-workshops, world-cafe, key-note speakers, presentations on Sunday (for the results of the world-café-discussions), a panel-discussion “from the field to build” on Saturday , an exhibition place for companies, free time for connection and networking, and an Award Competition on Sunday afternoon (architects/planners/designers are invited to design a simple, affordable one-room 50 m2-straw bale house).
On Thursday 15th and Monday 19th there will be two different straw bale house TOURS. We will visit 4/5 straw-bale building each day with different functions and destinations.
The ESBG will also be open to Italian builders, professionals and non-skilled participants. We provide simultaneous translation IT-EN for the most important conferences and presentations made by the University of Venice which is a partner.
Award Competition: Promopaglia would like to invite students, professional designers and architects under 30 to design a small, affordable public building (1 room, about 50 m2). The goal is 1000 buildings for 1000 towns (which means 3% of the building market in Italy). Last year 100 straw bale buildings were built in Italy, but this amount should multiply in the future. Here the infos!
Accomodations: ESBG2017 Participants are pleased to book the accomodations on their own, we got special conditions at two Camping (with places for tents/caravans or comfortable bungalows) and two Hotels. Here you can find all informations to have the ESBG special prices!
Food: A catering-company will provide the food, also with vegetarian menù and special menù for people with intolerances or allergies.
