Description

Designing for Sustainability through Upcycling – Learning from Paleiskwartier

Designing for Sustainability through Upcycling | While increasingly more people live in cities, peripheries are expending at the cost of nature. This book explains how sustainability can be achieved by urban redevelopment and upcycling. The large-scale processes of urban redevelopment in this book are based on a successful brownfield project in Netherlands, the Paleiskwartier in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

Designing for Sustainability through Upcycling tells the nearly three-decade long inside story of how policies were made, decisions taken, designs created, how the projects developed in phases and how the city government partnered the private sector in a unique way. A series of essays and short interviews with key players involved – including directors, designers, developers and city-officials provides a detailed overview of how this project was actually realised.

This book offers first-hand information of 30 years of development as told by master-planner Shyam Khandekar. Professor Vinayak Bharne places the process of upcycling in the context of developments from other parts of the world.

• Explains how to achieve sustainability through urban redevelopment and upcycling
