UMBAU (conversion) means the continuous transformation of existing structures. As societies change, so do the needs of buildings. In the context of this continuous process of change, those who reuse and recycle materials and components save resources, avoid waste and use the grey energy stored in existing buildings.


This is why UMBAU, an ancient cultural technique, is gaining new importance in the face of climate change.
