Abstract
Elaborating on the paper presented at the IASS2015 congress a further expansion of the theory how to build accommodaptive architecture is sought for. A focus towards buildings materialized with biobased materials is quantified and fit into the accommodaptive theory responding to the current paradigm shift (smaller footprint, Cradle to Cradle, Super Use, Re-Use, adaptivity, Trias materials) the building industry is undergoing.Part of the theoretical framing is the evaluation of accommodaptive details created by MoveYou of more than 20 different building systems (A). Next to that the first outlines and outcome of a tool (Flexibiliteit Calculator), created to quantify adaptability and accommodation into money (A.B.A. Hameetman) is described (B). The literature review is completed (C) and coupled to the outcomes of a Master course tutored on the University of Technology Eindhoven. Possible options to improve these building systems to make them more adaptive are described (D).
