Experience Circular Building at Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven (Hall 3 Klokgebouw)

From the 20th until the 28th of October EPEA will exhibit its ´Reversible Experience Modules´ (REMs) at the 2018 Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven!

The design of the exhibit is completely adjusted to fit the requirements of the largest design event in Northern Europe. Visitors to the REMs can get to work themselves with modular, detachable and Cradle to Cradle designed products and systems. Each product has a Material Passport that is accessible to visitors by scanning the products with their own mobile phone! The passports give access to all information that supports the circular use of materials and buildings.

The REMs are one of the key pilots for dynamic and flexibly designed buildings in the European ‘Buildings As Material Banks’ project. (www.bamb2020.eu) The project aims to integrate Materials Passports with Reversible Building Design principles to create zero-waste, completely circular buildings. The objective of the REMs exhibition is to let the visitor experience how circular construction works, with what materials and products it is already possible, and how Material Passports support circularity; from the design phase of products and buildings to the recycling phase.

Opening hours of the REMs at DDW are daily from 11:00 until 18:00. The REMs are located in hall 3 of the Klokgebouw, plot 3.06 (see floorplan below).

On Wednesday, October 24th, EPEA director and Cradle to Cradle co-founder Michael Braungart will be speaking next to the REMs in the ABN-AMRO circular pavilion as part of the “Van Waste naar Winst” event.

On Thursday, October 25th, EPEA Nederland director Hein van Tuijl will speak at the Cradle to Cradle Café about Buildings as Materials Banks and Madaster at the Dutch Design Week. Visitors will receive a passe-partout to the Dutch Design Week and will be guided through the REMs exhibit as part of the day program.
