Buildings as Material Banks:

Considering buildings as “material banks” means seeing these as repositories of valuable, and high quality materials that can easily be taken apart and recovered. With this vision, the building itself is considered a materialized savings account for material resources through which building materials, products, and components are temporarily ‘deposited’ into a functional element or part of the building.

The transition towards a circular and dynamic built environment will require several systemic changes, material innovations, improved reuse opportunities, new design practices, and increased knowledge on material flows. Join us as we embark on this exciting journey.
