Sustainable design begins with material life cycle management
This book provides a conceptual and practical look into materials and products that use waste as a renewable resource for architectural, interior, and industrial design.
The authors introduce an inventory of current projects and building elements – ranging from marketed products to advanced research and development – made of materials otherwise treated as waste. The construction products are shown in the context of their applications in built or prototypical projects. A product directory presents all materials and projects according to their functional uses in construction.
