Building materials into circuit
Cities as material banks
With 30 partners from the cities of Copenhagen, Hamburg, London, and Helsinki, Vandkunsten is to pave the way for circular economy and regenerative cities.
CIRCuIT is the title of the research and innovation project funded by the EU. An abbreviation for Circular Construction In Regenerative Cities, the aim is to act as catalysts for the cities to take advantage of their built in resources,
The City of Copenhagen was the applicant for the grant application to the Horizon 2020 framework program of the European Union. and the city is the managing partner.
Looking after our resources
In the EU project we will help the partner cities to look at their city as material mine for raw materials and components which can be reused instead of crushed and downgraded. Entire structures carry the potential for transformations to preserve energy, materials, and culture – an example of this is the conversion of the Motor torpedo boat hall.
