OPINNÄYTETYÖ: Circular Economy in Architecture – sustainable principles for future design
The aim of this project is to bring awareness about
the subject of sustainable design in a modern
context and gather this information into one
place. Many ideas presented are ones that have been
around for as long as people have built buildings,
such as material scarcity, resource efciency and
reusing existing materials while reducing waste.
Some ecobuilding projects that have successfully
implemented these ideas will be presented.
In the conclusion, I will present certain concrete
ideas and methods for bringing about circular
thinking into the built environment. A good starting
point would be to decide whether a building needs to
be demolished, if so, can the elements be reused or
recycled, or if designing a new build with renewable
raw materials is the best option.
