The Circular Built Environment (CBE) Hub

In this video Tillmann presents the Circular Built Environment (CBE) Hub. The Hub was established in 2017 with the aim to promote the development and exchange of knowledge towards a circular built environment, enabling the design of future buildings, cities and infrastructures. It now accounts more than 60 members who meet on a monthly basis. A smaller steering committee group coordinates a number of actions organized and carried out by the CBE Hub like the yearly student ‘Circularity in the Built Environment Graduation Awards’, the ‘Definitions and Philosophy Workshops’ and a series of other research and education activities across Departments but also TU Delft Faculties.

Circularity for Educators

The platform is intended to provide with content on either circularity or pedagogy for and about circularity. It is one of the outcomes of the Circular Impulse Initiative (CII), a project intending to enhance the integration of circularity in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment education. The platform mainly aims to help tutors get better acquainted with circularity in the built environment by providing a series of resources on this subject that they can either view to get better informed or directly share with their students in class or online. A large number of the Faculty's professors and researchers have contributed substantially both in creating a coherent narrative for circularity in the built environment as well as further elaborating on different aspects of it. Besides this one, a new platform for interaction and direct exchange was also established in parallel that we call ‘Educators for Circularity‘. This one offers the opportunity for all of us to meet and share our experiences and learn from one another.
