The meeting point will be Ebensee railway station, from where participants will be taken by bus to the respective houses.

It is a difficult and time-consuming endeavour to put theoretical and practical knowledge about proven building techniques into practice in your own house. With our  “house visits” in several selected buildings in the Salzkammergut, the workshop participants enter into an exciting dialogue with the respective builders/residents, who also report on the unintentional mistakes and hoppalas when building themselves. However, these  “blurbs” are not a problem, in fact, they are almost an integral part of the concept of  “Simple Smart Buildings”.

Simple Smart Buildings 

What materials and techniques have been used in the past to build resilient homes? Which of these construction methods have proven to be durable, sustainable and beautiful in the long term an exploration with workshops and lectures as a participatory knowledge transfer.
