BK Talks: Reinventing the wheel? Circularity and the built environment

01 oktober 2020 18:30 t/m 20:30 - Locatie: Oostserre & Online - Door: Communicatie BK

Arjan van Timmeren (Professor of Environmental Technology & Design, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, TU Delft) will steer a discussion about the ongoing conversation that, understanding the city as an organism, proposes, for over a decade, to change our linear society into a circular one, closing urban inflows and outflows into cycles.

What are the technologies that help us sense the city? How to properly use the available data about waste? How to turn our cities into true mines where all waste is reused? How does circularity contribute to a socially sustainable urban development and regeneration? What are the social implications of the so-called doughnut city? What is the role of the citizen in the fabrication of a circular model of city?...
