Cradle to Cradle (C2C) is a novel approach towards the circular economy, which provides a framework for designing products and buildings whose resources flow safely in closed loops.
The emphasis of the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Approach in construction lies on maintaining inputs at their quality level to render the concept of waste obsolete.
Research finds that we are at the tipping point wherein, for the first time, human-made products have more mass than the total living biomass. Meanwhile, only 8,6% of resources are treated circularly, according to the Circle Economy’s Circularity Gap Report.
The holistic Cradle to Cradle (C2C) vision of designing buildings that produce oxygen, sequester carbon and nitrogen, and distil water like trees, may sound intimidating.
Therefore, there is an evolutionary approach that guides us in the ways to design safe, sustainable, greener and circular buildings inline with C2C’s 10 Principle Criteria.
Since plenty of the material extraction processes generate unhealthy environmental impacts, the more circular economy, the lower will the carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption be.
Based on the principles of the circular economy, ARENCOS contributes to mitigating the waste management challenges faced by the modern structures and development projects in Crete, Greece.
Business Digitalization has changed our perception of functionality, planning, biophilic responsive design, sustainability, services, fire safety, building height, and scale of the building. Spatial planning in particular is getting more sophisticated, mainly due to advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data analytics.
In spite of the term’s fuzziness the urgency to construct residential and commercial projects resiliently continues to grow. As most scientists agree that violent weather events will become more frequent and problems or bottleneck phenomena in the supply chain will increase, code officials, governmental authorities and regulatory agencies respond with a slew of new terms, codes and regulations while people insist on re-building in the same places as if nothing had ever happened.
