The I.H.B.A. is proud to announce the 2nd International Hemp Building Symposium this year 2011. Come to Granada for two days of communication between international hemp building experts, academics, architects, policy-makers and stakeholders to discuss the present and future trends of this growing sector. The event will include presentations, and also a fascinating tour of CANNABRIC’s hemp brick factory in Guadix with demonstrations.
The Symposium language is English.

  • Presentations.
  • Talks.
  • Bus tour to Cannabric Factory & Demonstrations.
  • Q & A Sessions.
  • Networking & Education.

This venue has been chosen as it has a very different climatic region to the first venue in Ireland, it is also near to the Cannabric factory which provides an opportunity to get a close look at the materials and projects of architect Monika Brümmer, who has been working with hemp building materials for 15 years.
After the success of last years event we have a high level to aim at for the 2nd Symposium, the hemp building system has gained wider acceptance throughout the international world of green building and so we expect an even larger attendance for this event.
The symposium will be held at the ABADES NEVADA PALACE HOTEL located 20 minutes from city center of GRANADA, Spain, which is home to The Alhambra, the famous moorish citadel and palace and at the foot of Spain’s highest mountain range, the Sierra Nevada.
