Design for Circularity: What if We Could Redesign Everything?
Time & Location
About the event
In theory, redesign begins with a problem. The problem might be specific or systemic or subjective. While progress may entail change, change does not necessarily guarantee progress. But a clever circular redesign, one that addresses the right problem in an intelligent fashion, improves the world, if just by a bit.
Join us for an exciting morning of showcases which exemplifies how to design for circularity in the built environment. 8 circular pioneers will take the stages and present the mindset, method and material choices behind their design. Presentations will be Pecha Kucha style, followed by questions from an expert panel.
