VUB launches circular design toolkit | 21/4

Great news for building designers and clients.
VUB Architectural Engineering will launch a new toolkit for Circular Design on 21 April.


During a new webinar of the Green Deal Circular Building, Waldo Galle will tell us how to get started with this toolkit as a construction team and how to integrate circularity in a meaningful way in every project in four steps.

Then Stijn Elsen (KADERSTUDIO, VUB) gives us an insight into the Circular Retrofit Lab of the VUB. On the basis of a few concrete design choices, their execution and detailing, he shows how architects, contractors and material producers together put circular designs into practice.

Anne Paduart (VITO) and Jeroen Poppe (VUB) then join in to share their project experience and answer all your questions. After all, no matter how you turn it around, only by sharing experience will we move forward faster.

Everyone will be able to download the toolkit for free


The webinar is organized by Circular Flanders in Dutch only.
on Tuesday, April 21, between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.
