Green Workshop: Mine the city - With logistics to circular metabolisms

The workshop centers on material stocks accumulated in the urban environment and the material fluxes associated with building construction. Taking the city as a reservoir of matter, waste streams, re-use, and recycling strategies need to be considered within the building sector in order to reduce the ecological footprint of construction.
