The Great Magnet

How One House Turns A Neighbourhood Green

The Motown Movement is an urban initiative established by Bob Hendrikx, Ronen Dan and Dominik Lukkes, three architecture students from the TU Delft in the Netherlands. Their goal is to fight climate change by making sustainable technology accessible for everyone. Their plan is to design and share methods for transforming derelict houses into self-sufficient homes by means of affordable, sustainable and innovative techniques. By doing so, they aim to inspire other current and future home owners to do the same – turning their initiative into a global movement.

This session will be a Skype presentation.


The technology to fight climate change is there, but then how come not everyone is using it? In this frustration lies the passion of Bob Hendrikx. This TU Delft Architecture student is eager to make sustainable housing accessible for everyone.
