Polyspace

research and pilot

Klarenbeek & Dros their core focus lies in developing biomaterials and researching eco-technological production methods for site-specific objects. At the heart of their mission is the exploration of symbiotic relationships within (robotically) formed structures, harnessing algae, mosses, and mycelium expertise for innovative solutions. This led to experimental Bio-Inclusive structures, promoting biodiversity and shifting from monocultures to polycultures.

Polyspace is a prime example of “absorbent” architecture which excels in micro dust filtration. Panels and frames with a porous structure facilitate light and air passage, serving as filters and moss growth foundations. Their innovative approach extends to versatile installations, such as dual-purpose bus stops, passageways, walls and sculptures providing micro-dust protection.

Klarenbeek & Dros pioneers resilient landscapes amidst climate challenges, contributing to radical city concepts. Their green innovation reshapes local identities and enhances distinctive attributes. Since 2015, they have dedicated themselves to algae-based biopolymers, earning them the 2018 Dutch Material Award. With Klarenbeek & Dros we do research on how to implement Polyspace projects in the city landscape.
