How do we design our buildings, products and foodchain to circular economy principles?
Brought together by our desire to build a sustainable future, our guest speakers will welcome an open conversation about long term durability, adaptability, disassembly and reusability and question how we as architects, engineers and entrepreneurs can work with and not against our environment.
Presentations of our foundation-free, fully demountable timber framed design for Ilford’s new community and hydroponic farm, and Chip[s]board, building materials made from potato waste, will be followed by a discussion on the opportunities and challenges of designing to Circular Economy Principles.
