What would happen if everything in the built environment was designed to be restorative and regenerative? This is the core of a circular economy—that products, building materials and furniture no longer have a life cycle with a beginning, middle, and end.
In theory, redesign begins with a problem. The problem might be specific or systemic or subjective. While progress may entail change, change does not necessarily guarantee progress. But a clever circular redesign, one that addresses the right problem in an intelligent fashion, improves the world, if just by a bit.
Join us for an exciting morning of showcases which exemplifies how to design for circularity in the built environment. Eight circular pioneers will take the stage and present the mindset, method, and material choices behind their designs. Presentations will be Pecha Kucha style, followed by questions from an expert panel.
