BC Architects & Studies & Materials is a hybrid practice, designing and undertaking „acts of building“ towards systemic change in the construction sector. We strive for bio-regional, low-tech, circular, beautiful and inclusive design. We work with our minds and our hands, undertaking activities such as community organisation, material production, contracting, teaching and prototyping. We aim to impact positively on people’s ideas and have an influence on our planet. We act on behalf of future generations.
