Building A Circular Future

Jensen, Kasper Guldager, and John Sommer. Building a Circular Future. Kobenhavn: GXN Innovation, 2016.

This book provides fantastic insight from a Danish team dedicated to reducing waste from construction. This book creates a template for architects to design buildings from the beginning with as little waste as possible. The authors embrace the quantized nature of the world we live in and the planned obsolescence of building materials to create a rigorous vision for the future that embraces the ephemeral nature of current construction. What this book lacks is a philosophical vision for the ephemerality of space beyond the fact that it is sustainable; what does it mean when all space is acknowledged as temporary?
