“Integrating Circularity into Architecture Curricula”
The increased population and inadequate design and construction interrupt the systems of the earth causing a serious crisis that threatens the existence of sustainable living on the earth. Rethinking the traditional subjects and clarifying the challenges to the architecture discipline and education in these serious environmental and social crises will significantly affect architects’ training. The presented educational methodologies will illustrate the integration of circularity concepts in different scales into architecture curricula.
