Architectural photography of the Circular Building.

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London.

This fascinating design by London-based Arup Associates Architects is constructed according to the principles of the Circular Economy in The Built Environment – a recent study by Arup, outside the Building Centre in Central London. The building is made entirely from fully re-usable elements, as an exemplar study to show how the construction industry can work towards a zero-waste situation. “Circular” in this case means re-usable, as opposed to “linear” – meaning elements are used and then scrapped. Each component can be disassembled with minimum damage, and reassembled or re-purposed as required.
