Aufzeichnungen der Veranstaltungen: Vortrag und Diskussion


This lecture will address the question of reusing building materials. It will show how this topic is, for Rotor, a way to explore and question our relationship to the material environment, and how it is designed and built. Incorporating reclaimed materials into a construction does not only call to rethink design strategies, it also necessitates to dig into procedures, technical, economic and normative aspects. The lecture will share some insights and lessons learnt by Rotor throughout this process.

Michael Ghyoot has trained as an architect. In 2008 he joined the non-profit organisation Rotor. Since then, he has been involved in the association's many projects: exhibition making, lectures, assistance to building owners, research efforts...
