HOPE HOME • НАДІЯ is a pilot project for radically different building in Ukraine; It wants to advance the connection to a broad network that spans knowledge, disciplines and geographies for the use of renewable building materials.

Artists and scientists participating in the exhibition EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! have explored and advanced new connections with ecological building materials such as sheep’s wool, mushroom mycelium, hemp, clay, and bark. Unforeseen potentials for a sustainable construction industry are emerging, particularly in the reconstruction of war-torn and disaster-stricken areas. It is responsible for 30% of CO2 emissions, 40% of energy consumption, 50% of resource consumption, 60% of waste generation and 70% of surface sealing (source Baukultur+). Without a transformation of this sector through a circular economy and renewable building materials, a sustainable future will not be possible.

Hope Home focuses on the arisically driven exploraion and applicaion of natural building materials. Drawing on the Bauhaus movement from 100 years ago, it emphasizes interdisciplinary aestheic cooperaion with various approaches and outputs, yet sharing a concrete 2 reference point. The menioned building materials touch upon various fields sustsainability, from energy conservaion to air purificaion, biodiversity, and health.

The exhibiion EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! has demonstrated how much art today understands about renewable, sustainable raw materials as building materials. It has shown how much knowledge about materials like sheep’s wool, bark, hemp, and fungi is gathered worldwide and arisically shaped. This knowledge urgently awaits implementaion in an open society. We share the belief that art, science, and social movements must open up to each other to forge new paths—and they visibly desire to do so. Reliable funding structures for this purpose are lacking.

Collaboraive alternaives are emerging through scienific material research that require public aoenion and poliical support. We share the desire for a collective multidisciplinary practice, aiming to go where the implementation could make the most significant sense, in the spirit of EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW!
