The following data has been collected by SERVICE among students that followed Circularity in the Built Environment in 2021/2022. Based on this feedback or other causes, it is possible that the course will have a different set up in the future. Keep this in mind when you use these data for selecting your courses.

The course starts with an introduction of Circular Ecology as planetary resource management, and the problematic amounts to which we have failed so far to manage Earth properly. Then we move on to Circular Economy to see how outdated notions of “costs”, “growth” and “progress” conflict with circularity and need updating. The Building Economy is next: we look at key stats, goals and ambitions of this sector as well as stakeholders in the transition towards Circular Building. Then we take a look at various design and technology assessments to see how they approach the ideal of Life Cycle Thinking. We investigate what they do and do not measure, so that you can use them appropriately to make informed circular decisions. Finally we zoom in to Circular Design and Technology in the Built Environment at ever smaller scales: from spatial planning, to buildings; to products; to material resources. The course is designed as a weekly modular cycle of a lecture followed by a (group) assignment and a feedback & debate session about your intermediate results. It is rounded up with personal reflections and conclusions and from there the development of a personal follow-up research plan.
Introducing and exercising the background knowledge, context, concepts and methods of Circular Design in the Built Environment and preparing the Circularity Research a/o Design Project (7xc2m0).
