circular buildings and facades

The Circular Facades platform has the aim to inspire and inform construction teams on designing and building for a circular economy, with a focus on facades. This way, knowledge becomes accessible, coherent, and ready to use. It arose from the concern that despite all available knowledge, the circular principles are only applied on a small scale in construction practice.

What are circular facades?

 There is not one clear-cut definition of circularity, circular construction or circular facades. It depends on the project and the context. However, more explanation is given under 'Definition'. Some practical cases inspire show the potential.
