The building sector is responsible for approx. 40% of green-house gas emissions, almost 40% of ressource consumption and more than 50% of global waste, which underlines the enormous ecological, social and economical potential of changes in this industry.
To unlock this potential, transformative, circular and scalable solutions are required. This is what F2K is aiming at.
F2K combines traditional knowledge and disruptive technologies to bring a scalable building-kit for adaptive houses into existence. We believe that if environmental changes are not only conceptualized as risks, but as a challenge and opportunity to evolve, it can become one of the most rewarding rides of our lifetime to help making our planet a place where we can continue to thrive.
To accelerate the transition of our concept into scalable products, F2K formed co-creative Partnerships with Arup – one of the global leaders in planning and engineering – and the University of Duisburg Essen (Institute for digitization of the construction industry). Arup adds their multifaceted knowledge regarding engineering and circular design principles to the development process and the Institute for digitization conquers uncharted digital territory with us to implement digital tools for adaptive buildings and circular business models.
F2K’s first productdevelopment is the ADPT-building kit. Current Status: Prototyping – production of first two building blocks as proof of concept.
