Reuse and disassembly in Construction : from Abyss to Zen
Let's start this gaping discussion about the reuse and deconstruction of our built environment and how it fits into our open source approach !
Here we focus on adaptive reuse and components/elements/materials reuse as part of a circular economy model for construction.
As this is a very broad and complex topic, this first post provides a list of references and links to be completed as we go along. Feel free to share your expertise and contribute ! Perhaps we can reuse this base later for the wiki.
Thank you all for keeping the discussion constructive ☺
