Abstract

The shift from a linear make-use-dispose perspective to the closure of the loops marks an up-to-date approach to sustainability in building design. Value preservation and resource optimization are the poles of a process aimed at a smart development rebound, through game-changing strategies. Prosperity and resilience are the horizons for a circular economy transition into action, reversing settlements’ cycles with the support of new business models for a sustainable urban future. Issues related to the environmental crisis, societal expectations, economic challenges are the drivers of a new commitment to replace the concept of end of life, with life cycle lengthening.
