About This Book

This book is a call to arms to all architects, designers and built environment professionals. To avoid a climate catastrophe and achieve a regenerative built environment, the use of new materials and any excess waste in resources need to be cut out from the very beginning of the design process. This requires far-reaching change in established industry processes. How might this begin? What are the key fundamentals you need to know? How can a more effective model be applied? This book, a much-updated second edition of the author's previous work Building Revolutions, answers all your questions. Inspiring, but never overwhelming, the Handbook to Building a Circular Economy is your must-have companion to helping create a more sustainable future. It explains in simple and practical terms how the principles of a circular economy can be applied to the built environment, thereby reducing the resources required to construct, fit-out, maintain and refurbish buildings. Case studies include:

  • The Forge, UK, by Landsec
  • The Bath School of Art, UK, by Grimshaw
  • Urban Mining and Recycling Experimental Unit, Switzerland, by Werner Sobek
  • NASA Sustainability Base, USA, by William McDonough + Partners
  • University of East Anglia Enterprise Centre, UK, by Architype
  • Park 20|20, The Netherlands, by William McDonough + Partners.
