Designing for longevity or deconstruction: Is it a choice?

Nicholas Hare Architects

Tuesday 26 April, 6.30-8.30pm Nicholas Hare Architects, 3 Barnsbury Square, London N1 1JL

Should new buildings be designed for long life with built in adaptability for future reuse, or designed for a limited lifespan and ready deconstruction? The circular economy makes a lot of sense for many industries, but is it the right approach for building design, where reuse and adaptation may be more resource-efficient than deconstruction and recycling?
