This book is a highly illustrated “map,” using photos, infographics and statistics, showing designers how they can successfully navigate the emerging field of resource management and the circular economy. Using the Brighton Waste House Project as a basis for this, the book will look at key moments and landmark decisions made during its design and construction, as well as the people and projects from around the world that inspired them.
