Harvest Map

A design is not considered as the beginning of a linear process but as a phase in a continuous cycle of creation and recreation, use and reuse. The latent properties of used materials and products offer an added value to new products and buildings. To get a grip on the complexity of all these aspects, most projects start with investigating the different relevant layers. Text from: 2012 developed a website, (moved?

Niet alleen kost de afbraak zelf energie (voor het bedienen van de sloopmachines en het afvoeren van het afbraakmateriaal), bovendien gaat alle energie verloren die in de bouw van het oude huis werd geïnvesteerd.

Most of our cities have grown into conglomerates of monofunctional districts that hardly relate to eachother. Business districts, industrial zones, agriculture, housing and commerce are spatially restricted and hardly benefit from eachothers presence. The rising in- and outgoing flows of goods, energy, water, food and even capital are unrelated and contribute to limitless transport, local clogging of traffic, loss of energy and growth of pollution. Lucy Carpet House. Earthship. South and East view of an Earthship passive solar home Earthship typical floorplan Earthships are primarily designed to work as autonomous buildings using thermal mass construction and natural cross ventilation assisted by thermal draught (Stack effect) to regulate indoor temperature.


Earthships are generally off-the-grid homes, minimizing their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels. Earthships are built to utilize the available local resources, especially energy from the sun. For example, windows on sun-facing walls admit lighting and heating, and the buildings are often horseshoe-shaped to maximize natural light and solar-gain during winter months.

Eventually, Reynolds' vision took the form of the common U-shaped earth-filled tire homes seen today. Systems[edit] Water[edit] Earthship Biotecture - Radically Sustainable Buildings.

PlanetReuse - Reused and Reclaimed Building Materials Marketplace.


PlanetReuse - Reused and Reclaimed Building Materials Marketplace. Benefits of Reuse. It is important to recognize that the sustained growth in reuse efforts, as well as the sustained interest of the reuse industry, derives in large measure from the solid waste reduction hierarchy: Reduce, Reuse, then Recycle.

Benefits of Reuse

It is best to reduce first, reuse as a second option, then to resort to recycling. Reuse is recognized as being distinct from recycling, both in doctrine, and in the handling of the materials this unique industry diverts from the waste stream. Recyclers have successfully kept materials out of the landfill by collecting, segregating, processing and manufacturing their collected goods into new products. Reusers, on the other hand, with little or no processing, keep materials out the waste stream by passing the goods they collect on to others.

Teaching this Series. Deconstruction & ReUse Network How It Works. Materials Reuse. On a pleasant day in one of Chicago’s suburbs, a deconstruction contractor and his crew remove an original, custom-made window for salvage from a 1923 home.

Materials Reuse

Using simple pry-bar tools, a team member loosens the window from the inside while the crew chief helps from outside, so the sills and jambs are not damaged.
