On November 30, 2022 , This symposium examines approaches to resourcefulness in architecture; how sustainability challenges the foundations of our material practices and how they can change with it

This symposium was the first in  the series of the 6 panels. It examines approaches to resourcefulness in architecture.

It asks how rethinking waste through circular design paradigms can challenge our ideas of ‘end of life’ and engineer new materials with bespoke lifespans that actively engage and correspond to building performance. It questions how computational design processes can aid the management of recycled resource stocking, support processes of de-fabrication and optimise the strategic deployment of resource. And it challenges our assumptions of how materials are sourced probing how bio-based and synthetically grown materials can lead to new agri-and silvicultures of resource procurement.

Invited speakers: Dirk E. Hebel, Sabine Oberhuber, Philip Yuan, Alexandre Monnin, Phil Ayres, Comunal Taller, Anna Denell, Carlo Ratti and Mette Ramsgaard Thomsen.

Moderator: Martha Thorne.
