The lecture will introduce us the subject of circular economy in the context of cities and architecture. The lecturer will tell us how to design in a closed circuit. He will explain the relationship between "post-growth" and closed-loop economy.

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals is an agenda of the United Nations which shows us the directions and ways of developing and creating a good future together. During the lecture, we will consider whether cities can be circular. We will talk about how you can build them using existing materials. The lecturer will reveal what the relationship between post-growth and the circular economy is about.
