Valldaura Labs is an exploratory project in self-sufficient and ecologically aware living that aims to develop a Living Lab for the self-sufficient Habitat. The initiative is intended to develop and expand during the following years with the effort and experience of researchers, faculty and students.
The key is to use the resources that the campus has to offer, as well as the skills and experience of all participants involved in the initiative to test the technologies and processes that will transform our cities and buildings into more ecological and bilaterally connected places.
The vision of the future of Valldaura Labs is focused on how to learn through practice, and to design buildings and self-sufficient habitats that use renewable and ecologically conscious materials and processes. The areas of work are focused on digital manufacturing, ecological materials, energy self-sufficiency and slow food as well as strategies in zero waste and life cycles.
