“The Re-Use Atlas: A Designer’s Guide to the Circular Economy” Blog
This months RIBA Journal features the first in a series of articles on reuse written by Duncan! The article featured in the Intelligence: Sustainability section is entitled “A matter of living or dying” and discusses “The Re-Use Atlas” along with details on Duncan’s case study with Cyrill Gutsch from Parley for the Oceans.
This book is a highly illustrated ‘atlas’, taking the reader on a journey, via four distinct ‘steps’ (recycling, reuse, reduce, closed loop), from our current ‘linear economy’ towards a system emulating the natural world, i.e, a ‘circular economy’. Featuring over 25 detailed case studies describing design exemplars from the worlds of textile & fashion design, product design, interior architecture, architecture and urban design, its purpose is to show designers how they can successfully navigate and exploit the emerging field of resource management and the circular economy. Each step is supplemented with an in depth interview with an expert who is successfully tackling one or more of these challenges that present all designers today
