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.
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.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or want to discuss the possibilities for cooperation.
A kitchen for life
Together with producers and clients, researchers from BK Bouwkunde and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS Institute) developed a prototype circular kitchen. This kitchen can be renewed almost indefinitely and adjusted to individual preferences, meaning it is a kitchen for life.
Sustainable critical materials
Critical materials are materials which we need for current and future product technologies, but which are now or soon difficult to acquire. BK Bouwkunde is part of the consortium SusCritMat, which aims to educate people from industry and academia about important aspects on critical materials.
