The seminars in the series ‘Living Together: Territory, Community, Resources’ offer a space for reflection in which professionals in architecture and urbanism come together with experts, researchers and activists from different fields to share experiences and engage in a dialogue with the audience.
Circular construction, a practice that is firmly committed to the principles of sustainability, is opening new inroads the field of architecture. By prioritising the use of local raw materials and resources, reusing materials, and abiding by the principles of energy efficiency, this construction technique is also incentivising new economies founded on respect for the environment. In this seminar, we will share the experiences of various professionals and specialists dedicated to circular construction, and we will look at how to expand and disseminate its use.
