Circular business models are solid enough only if there is market demand behind, and we all know that users create the demand. Thus, conscious, informed consumers can drive the transition to alternative and circular business models. Some questions arise from this statement:

How would the way we build change if users decided on the design and use of the buildings and public spaces they inhabit?

  • How would the professional relationships among the different actors within the construction value chain be transformed if consumers demanded renewable, healthy materials, bioclimatic buildings, modular constructions designed for deconstruction…?

The second FISSAC Living Lab Barcelona, co-organized with the Societat Orgànica, a professional cooperative that works in the field of sustainable building, served as a visualization spot of successful experiences and as a space for an exchange of views and ideas:

Visualization of successful experiences: presentation of local concrete projects that have launched alternative circular models within the resource management, the design, and the construction phase, in which the needs and expectations of the users have been taken into account. Take a look at the APROP project of the Barcelona City Council or the ones being implemented by the cooperative of architects LACOL.

Workshop (debate, exchange of ideas): representatives of housing cooperatives, construction and building companies, technological institutes, environmental consultancy companies, public administration agents, architects and designers joined an open discussion about the different circular actions that are being developed within the construction sector and those that could ideally be developed. The event ended with a debate about the possible solutions to those concrete barriers that nowadays hinder to carry out more circular building projects.

The second FISSAC Living Lab Barcelona, co-organized by SIMBIOSY together with the Societat Orgànica (a professional cooperative that works in the field of sustainable building) on the 30th of October 2018, , served as a visualization spot of successful experiences and as a space for an exchange of views and ideas.
