UMAR stands for the experimental unit “Urban Mining & Recycling” designed by Werner Sobek together with Dirk Hebel and Felix Heisel at the Swiss experimental campus NEST. The aim of the unit was to investigate how we can build in the future in a way that conserves resources as much as possible and how waste can be upgraded into new building materials – and how a recyclable building can be sustainably beautiful and breathtakingly beautiful at the same time. But what exactly does such an experimental campus actually look like? To find out the answer to this question, interested parties no longer have to travel to the Empa (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research) campus in Dübendorf, Switzerland, but can click through from the comfort of their own homes. Empa invites you to take a virtual tour of UMAR and other units of NEST, with exciting insights, exclusive interviews with experts and lots of additional information.
