A Danish view on circular construction – The Fifth Estate

As resources become scarcer, building owners may one day be able to sell walls, ceilings and floors to other developers, instead of demolishing them.

In practise, circular construction is all about the “connections, joints and system layers,” says Guldager Jensen.  For example, windows might be attached using a mechanical method rather than glue, or lime mortar might be used rather than concrete mortar.“It’s about being able to think about the mechanics and being able to do it in reversible ways.”
