Circular Built Environment Hub
Platform for researchers of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute) with the aim to promote the development of knowledge towards a circular built environment that enables the design of future buildings, cities and infrastructures.
Circular Built Environment (CBE) has a living lab approach, conducting live scale projects and experiments in cooperation between researchers & educators, public sector, private sector and society.
Circularity is a transdisciplinary and systemic approach, concerning the different scale levels from city to building, component and material. Here, social, technological, environmental and economic aspects are of major importance as well as stakeholders, processes and design.
Arjan van Timmeren and Alex Wandl (Urbanism, BK Bouwkunde TU Delft) discuss their ideas about circular cities with experts from all over the world at the Futurebuild 2019 event that will take place in London on 5-7 March 2019. The prototype of the REPAiR decision support system can be tested at the event.
Remanufacturing – Turning the building industry circular
On 22 January 2019, the Circular Built Environment Hub in collaboration with EIT Raw Materials organised a workshop on remanufacturing of building products at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. The event attracted stakeholders interested in moving the building industry towards a circular economy.
