The Re-Use Atlas
A Designer's Guide towards a Circular Economy
Duncan Baker Brown
RIBA Publishing, 2017
This book is a highly illustrated “atlas,” taking the reader on a journey via four distinct ‘steps’ (recycle, reuse, redue, closed loop), from a linear economy towards a system emulating the natural world – a circular economy. Featuring over 20 detailed case studies describing design exemplars from the worlds of textile and fashion design, product design, interior architecture, architecture and urban design, this book’s purpose is to show designers how they can succesfully navigate and exploit the emerging field of resource management and the circular economy.
