Everyone’s talking about sustainable architecture. A key aspect of this is a circular economy, which operates at every scale – from the individual building material to the entire city. During this one-day, English-language Zoom symposium presented by the University of Applied Arts, a wide range of aspects was addressed by international guest speakers from the fields of research and architecture. Organized by the Department of Building Construction of the Institute of Architecture, the event offered an overview of the complex area of “circular strategies”. The moderator was the author and journalist Wojciech Czaja, who began by stating his hope that, in a few years, talks about such essential yet complex subjects will no longer be necessary. For the symposium provided impressive proof of the experience that already exists in the field. It included both innovations and best practice projects from recent years, which offered hope that building materials will be more sustainable in future.
