Constructing a transition to a circular built environment

5 and 6 December 2019, WasteBuild will take place in RAI Amsterdam, the Netherlands. WasteBuild is the first and only international event dedicated to accelerating the transition towards a circular built environment.

The construction industry consumes 40 to 50 per cent of all materials used globally and accounts for 20 per cent of the waste created.

Running alongside the World Architecture Festival, WasteBuild aims to accelerate the transition towards a circular and regenerative built environment. The event is the first one of its kind and aims to show architects, engineers, designers and developers opportunities for a zero waste and circular economy in the built environment.

WasteBuild consists of a two-day conference and exhibition where the industry will come together to learn, share knowledge, be inspired, and do business. The conference features 50 speakers, including Udo Kock, Deputy Mayor of Amsterdam, Duncan Baker Brown of BBM Sustainable Design, Kasper Guldager Jensen of 3XN/GXN, Saskia Oranje and Karin Dorrepaal of DOOR architecten, Martijn Pool of Space&Matter, Jonathan Verdonck of KampC, and the Project Team behind SUPERLOCAL (for a full list see here).

The exhibition will consist of building materials designers and manufacturers, and innovators in construction techniques. The design for disassembly and re-purposed materials for future building projects will be central throughout the event.

Admission to the exhibition is free. Click here for tickets and more information.
