New design studio website: The Act of Building – on circular materials and processes

Climate mitigation requires a new attitude to materials and innovation in ecological and environmental engineering. In order to have a positive impact on our society, architects need to intervene beyond the narrow definition of the professional who designs and controls the execution of buildings. Hence, the design studio ‘On circular materials and processes’ of Catherine Mengé and Laurens Bekemans ventures into the study of local resources, construction waste and the development of bio-sourced building materials.
