Designing for Deconstruction
Waste remains a huge problem in the A&D industry—the EPA estimated that 600 million tons of construction and demolition debris were generated in the United States in 2018. How can we design structures and spaces so that they can be responsibly deconstructed at the end of their first use, so that building materials and interior products can be reused or turned into new products and projects?
Join experts from manufacturing, architecture, and advocacy for a discussion of how our product choices, design strategies, and cultural preferences have to shift in order to design for sustainable and healthy deconstruction.
