This book depicts a set of concrete examples of how to build in accordance with circular principles by using non-toxic, bio-based materials and low energy consumption, in other words by means of radical tectonics. Three wall structures in brick, wood, and straw displayed at the exhibition Circular Economics in Architecture and Design at KADK in 2017 are explained in a series of pictures, drawings, and analyses of their performance. The material is accompanied by short articles exploring various structural frameworks, economic scenarios, and aesthetic potentials associated with circular thinking. Based on knowledge from research, it is the intention to create qualified documentation and a visionary launch pad for improvement of a circular-based architecture.
