The construction industry's substantial consumption of materials, CO2 emissions, and construction and demolition waste underscore the pressing need for change. One promising solution is the reuse of secondary building components, which has the potential to signifi-cantly mitigate these environmental impacts. Circular Building Hubs (CBHs) have...

To date, customer education has been framed in terms of one-way information provision, at odds with much of the literature on meaning co-creation. Drawing on an ethnography of a specialty coffee purveyor, we show how staff and consum-<br/>ers co-create educational consumer journeys through the deployment of seven practices: auditing, realignment...

We are used to having access to a wide range of products every day of the year. Technology and import enable this offer, as fresh products were initially seasonal bound. The topic of seasonality is often researched and discussed in the light of sustainability and health. The focus is either on how to reduce food miles or why a connection with...

Our routines play an important role in a wide range of social challenges such as climate change, disease outbreaks and coordinating the staff and patients of a hospital. Studying these systems via agent-based simulations (ABS) enables researchers to gain insight into complex aspects of these challenges such as human interaction, learning,...

Rumour is a collective emergent phenomenon with a potential for provoking a crisis. Modelling approaches have been deployed since five decades ago; however, the focus was mostly on epidemic behaviour of the rumours which does not take into account the differences between agents. We use social practice theory to model agent decision-making in...

Agent-based modelling (ABM) is a widespread and commonly used technique for the understanding of social system behaviour. Despite ABM being a commonly used method for the analysis of complex social systems, simulated agents still can best be described as autistic before a specific set of social rules is ascribed to them. This discrepancy leads...

Food has a unique value in human society. As humans, we do not only fulfill our nutritional needs by food, but we also use it as a medium to reinforce our relationships. Providing food symbolizes caring loved ones, making them happy and fulfilled. When it comes to animal companionship, we as humans tend to reflect our existing caring practices...

METRO POLIS refers to the reciprocal relation between the urban environment and the metro system in Tokyo, Japan. In November 2016, its largest fish market was planned to relocate, leaving behind a vast territory in one of the central wards. As a strategy to connect this post-industrial territory to the everyday of the Tokyoites, a metro station...

SCOPE: A disconnection between the production and consumption of energy use makes it difficult for people to engage with the technologies related to energy. This causes that users can only engage with technologies by consuming the functionalities related to them. This is what Borgmann has been defined as the ‘device paradigm’. The goal of this...

This graduation project aims to make smart charging acceptable and valuable in the EV charging practice. The Dutch government estimates a strong increase in electric vehicles (EV’s) in the Netherlands in the coming decade. The current estimation is 200.000 EV's in 2020 towards 1 million EV's in 2025. This will have a big impact on the...

Sustainable design faces challenges at a scale and level of complexity that are ill at ease with design’s mainstream focus on products and users. Recently, social practice theory has been suggested as a promising theoretical framework to inform new ways of designing. In social practice theory, practices – socially shared entities such as...

In this graduation project, a 'personal thermal comfort' solution for novel, energy saving, heating practices was designed. The framework in which this design research is done is practice theory. Practice theory views practices as construct built up from skill, material (stuff) and image. Based on a practice prototype of envisioned heating...
