The circular economy is an economic model in which resources are circulated in a closed loop by adopting the R-strategies (e.g. reuse, recycling, and reduce) to minimize waste and pollution. Repurposing vacant buildings, known as adaptive reuse, is in line with the principle of circular economy, as it contributes to the reuse of the built assets...
