“The Re-Use Atlas: A Designer’s Guide to the Circular Economy” Blog
This months infamous Blueprint magazine have published an article written by one of our founding directors Duncan Baker-Brown. Duncan discusses his view on the circular economy and references his newly released book The Re-Use Atlas: A designer’s guide to the circular economy.
The Re-Use Atlas is a highly illustrated ‘atlas’, taking the reader on a journey via four distinct ‘steps’ (recycling, reuse, reduce, closed loop), from a 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 and fashion design, product design, interior architecture, architecture and urban design, this book’s purpose is to show designers how they can successfully navigate and exploit the emerging field of resource management and the circular economy.
Duncan references a selection of these case studies from his book in the article. To read further click on the relevant links below:
