Circularity in Urban Regions (MADE Collection)
There is a strong need to switch from a linear - make, waste, dispose - model, to a fully circular model for the city of Amsterdam. Amsterdam has committed to becoming fully circular by the year 2050.
AMS Institute addresses the urban challenge of transitioning from a linear to a circular model of resource management in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA). Circularity means to rethink and redesign the flow of resources such as building materials, water, food and energy that drive urban activities. The goal is to reuse resources rather than dispose them as in the linear model.
Research in the field of Circularity in Urban Regions in this collection was exectuted by students of the Master's programme Msc MADE (Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering).
