The reuse of secondary materials will be important in achieving a circular built environment. But now, this is challenging since material streams are not synchronized in terms of space and time. Building material hubs, a location where materials are gathered, examined, and momentarily stored before being packed and sent to the building site...

In the built environment, the continuous growth and expansion of urban areas worldwide have become alarming. The built environment is continuously developing in an unsustainable manner, and in the mid-term future, resources will be scarce if practices are not changed. Therefore, new building materials and methods need to be implemented to...

Nowadays, the built environment of the Netherlands is making the transition from the linear to circular economy to meet the goals set by the European Union and the Dutch government of 50% circular economy by 2030. However, there is limited knowledge in the built environment for circular economy projects. In order to generate knowledge on the...

Purpose: Adaptability is an inherent quality in building circularity, as adaptability can physically facilitate the reversibility of materials in a closed-reversible chain, also called “loops”. Nevertheless, positioning adaptability in circularity-oriented models could overlook some of the contextual considerations that contribute to the...

In my opinion, the primary goal of a piece of architecture should always be to connect to the people of a certain place, by tapping into the history and specificities of that place. This necessity is put into words and understood tacitly because of the existence of the opposite. In this project is strived to find a method how to work towards...

Urban Transplant is a tool for post-capitalist architecture. The circular approach, supported by in-depth research into reuse of in-situ structural concrete as components, offers transformation methods in the built environment. A dual site in Brussels, the World Trade Center and a post-industrial terrain, provides a proof of concept for the idea...

The circular economy transition requires companies to implement innovative supply chains and business models. However, the number of available solutions for the application in the circular built environment is limited. These solutions could be developed through the co-creation between companies aiming for circular transition. However, it is...

The goal of this project is to design a high-quality circular housing complex. The challenge lies in finding a balance between creating a circular and high-quality result and making it as cost-effective as possible. Circularity in this design will focus on using prefabricated timber modules that are designed for disassembly. It also entails the...

Moving towards the Dutch circularity goals of 2050, this project aims to diminish the amount of construction waste released by the demolition of 282 post-war dwellings in the Nieuwenhuysenbuurt in Amsterdam West (1954). Through the use of a flexible and demountable building system, construction waste is diminished now and in the future.

Over the last years, humanity has realised that the current ways of production, distribution and consumption are putting an enormous burden on our planet. One of the most efficient ways to reduce energy consumption is to insulate the entire exterior of the house, including walls and roof, which has proven to be economically viable for areas with...

The project proposes a futureproof neighborhood of an open building system in order to deal with the housing shortage, a circular economy and changing needs in society. The dense neighborhood in Amsterdam Sloterdijk makes a connection to the Brettenzone and is completely built from a smart support system and demountable infill systems and...

This project has been about taking a first step towards developing a radically innovative circular building system, with the double goal of vastly reducing climatic impact of building construction, as well as strongly reducing costs to aid the current housing crisis. The first step in this project has been research into the reusability of...

In recent years, the amount of resources consumed and the waste generated by the built environment has been growing at an alarming rate. The impacts of this are seen within our environment and felt by many. It can be said that the need to achieve circularity within the built environment is at its peak right now. Within the construction industry,...

Like Industrial Ecology research makes use of the analogy between closed-loop systems in nature and material flows in the economy, business ecosystem literature uses the analogy of ecosystems to explain cross-industry cooperative behavior. Regarding the Circular Economy transition, a circular business ecosystem can be defined as ‘a set of actors...

Being one of the world’s largest waste generator, the construction industry is responsible for a train of events such as global warming, climate change, and depletion of natural resources. Materials are exhausted globally to a large extent and the waste produced in the process is not treated properly. A “take-make-dispose” or popularly known as...

Office buildings in the Netherlands are problematic. These buildings are often monofunctional and of low architectural value resulting in an average lifespan of only 30 years! The tradition of demolition and new construction of mediocre buildings is harmful for public space and a waste of money, time, and moreover, building materials. <br/>This...

Many countries have committed themselves to the target for a circular economy (CE) in 2050. In this transition, the construction sector is important. One of the tools governments can use to stimulate circular building, is by incorporating circular tender criteria in land tendering. This thesis aims to improve circular land tendering requests by...
