Building with a circular economy

The built environment significantly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and uses almost 50% of the materials extracted every year. Of these materials, 15% are wasted in the construction process. We must look for ways to build better. In this episode, we will explore different circular strategies that organisations have adopted in their construction process and hear about exciting examples from around the world — from Ghana to the UK.
Speakers featured:

Grace Di Benedetto: Structural Engineer at Arup
Eric Corey Freed: Senior Vice President of Sustainability at CannonDesign and Co-Author of the book Circular Economy for Dummies
Hayley Gryc: Associate Director in International Development Team, Arup

Architecture that's built to heal by Michael Murphy

Published on Sep 15, 2016

“I have learned that architecture can be a transformative engine for change,” said Michael Murphy, co-founder and CEO of MASS Design Group, in his talk at the annualTED conference in Vancouver this February.Starting with a moving personal story about his father’s battle with and victory over cancer, the architect discussed ways the built environment can positively impact the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. He touched on many of his firm’s humanitarian projects, including the Butaro Hospital in Rwanda, the GHESKIO Cholera Treatment Center in Haiti, the Ilima Primary School in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Kasungu Maternity Waiting Village in Malawi.“In each of these projects we asked a simple question,” said Murphy. “What more can architecture do? And by asking that question, we were forced to consider how we could create jobs, how we could source regionally, and how we can invest in the dignity of the communities in which we serve.”Murphy concluded with a preview of MASS Design Group’s upcoming collaboration with the Equal Justice Initiative on a national memorial to victims of lynching. “Great architecture can give us hope,” he said. “Great architecture can heal.”

Sustainable Development and Preservation Clem Ogilby

EarthSayer | June 30, 2010 | 4:56

Clem Ogilby a career preservationist with extensive experience in repurposing residential and commercial structures for clients embracing green building principles and practices yet seeking a traditional aesthetic or historic sense of place talks about his passion for preserving buildings and how demolition is often unnecessary and not a sustainability principle or practice. One of his current projects is Saving the Morris Marks House, built in 1880 and facing demolition in 2011 if not moved and restored this year. This video was produced by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv, the voices of sustainability and was filmed by Barry Heidt and edited by Rob Russo.

Definition of sustainability and sustainable development must include  preservation of existing and useful buildings, historic in particular, but not solely.
