Circular Construction and Carbon Neutrality

Gray Organschi Architecture has launched a unique collaboration between the Yale School of Architecture and Aalto University (Finland) to develop new educational models that integrate building science principles and design strategies in circular economic and carbon neutral construction. Supported by SITRA, the Finnish Innovation Fund, this new curriculum will introduce students of architecture and design to principles of the circular economy and the research methods, analytical tools, and design techniques necessary to implement circular economic and carbon neutral strategies in the construction of buildings of high-quality and minimal carbon footprint. By providing a replicable methodology in the context of a multi-stakeholder and multi-objective building design process, the proposed curriculum will provide future professionals and practitioners with the conceptual and practical knowledge to fully engage the circular economy in the design and physical engineering of the built environment.
