Earth Architecture: Design and Materials Development from Waste Clay in A Swedish Context​​

The ReCirculate project was initiated to develop new techniques to build our cities. The building materials we use today have a large environmental impact and contribute to climate change both in Sweden and around the world. In order to reduce these negative impacts, we must minimize the extraction of new material and promote materials that already exist and/or have a low embodied energy. In order to access these embedded assets, we must utilize materials already existing in the urban built environment. ReCirculate is a research project that aims to explore innovative ways of using existing materials, by reusing materials and products from demolition and rebuilding projects and by developing new products with "waste clay" as a raw material. New construction products will be explored and developed within the project aiming to be used in the construction of Gothenburg City's "fossil-free" preschools and in several other future construction projects. The City’s preschool project will be used as a living lab to see how earth architecture can be implemented in a Swedish context.
