    Mehr.WERT.Pavillon has moved to permanent site

    With the end of the German Federal Garden Show , the Mehr.WERT.Pavillon by 2hs Architekten und Ingenieur PartGmbB and KIT Karlsruhe has been relocated to a permanent location at the head of Bleichinselbrücke, the bridge leading into the new city quarter Neckarbogen in Heilbronn.

    Mehr.WERT.Pavillon

    The Mehr.WERT.Pavillon by 2hs and KIT Karlsruhe addresses the question how we can perform a paradigm shift in the way we use our resources, from the currently dominant linear economy towards a circular economy of closed and pure material cycles. On the one hand, the pavilion makes use of the existing urban mine – all materials used in the project have already undergone at least one life cycle, either in the same or in a different form. On the other hand, it acts as a material depot, which will become available again for future constructions at the end of the exhibition.

    Urban Mining and Recycling (UMAR) Unit

    The Urban Mining and Recycling (UMAR) Unit is located within the NEST research building of Swiss Federal Laboratories for Material Science and Technology (Empa) in Dübendorf, Switzerland. The building design created by Werner Sobek with Dirk E. Hebel and Felix Heisel proves that circular construction is possible already today.
