BAMP! – Building with Paper Conference 2019

The Biulding with Paper Conference 2019 will take place for the first time on 07.11.2019 in the Georg Christoph Lichtenberg Haus in Darmstadt.


The main focus of the LOEWE program of the State of Hessen aims to contribute to the systematic development of the advantages of the material paper for the building industry and architecture to establish the prerequisites for a new economic field with an internationally visible focus in Hessen and to anchor it at the participating universities in long term.

Paper as a building material

Natural materials such as wood or paper have been used in the building industry and architecture for thousands of years and still play an important role in modern building and interior constructions. Examples range from plywood slabs and gypsum fibreboards to laminates. The available products are mainly based on the experience of the manufacturers. In this context, paper offers excellent potential for bio-based applications in the building industry and architecture. It is inexpensive to produce, consists mainly of renewable raw material, offers very good strength properties in relation to its own weight, can be produced as a sheet material but also with a high porosity or even as a foam and it is relatively easy to chemically functionalize the fibres.
