In order to formalize the guest professorship of Michael Braungart, in April 2011, an interdisciplinary platform has been established at the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture, Department of Architectural Engineering + Technology. This is the Cradle to Cradle Inspired Lab (C2C Inspired Lab). The purpose of this platform is to facilitate cross pollination between students from various faculties who share an interest in C2C related topics. The participants address projects that contain quality assured innovations, matching the C2C methodology. Furthermore, they get the opportunity to discuss – and collaborate – with public, private and academic partners, and explore how C2C methods are powering the circular economy.
Staff members who have been regularly involved in the Lab are: Peter Luscuere, Bob Geldermans, Suzanne van Dijk (Faculty of Architecture, TUD), Michael Braungart, Douglas Mulhall, Marleen Lodder (Rotterdam School of Management, EUR), Ingrid de Pauw, Bram van der Grinten (Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, TUD).
To learn about the C2C methodology, see this explanatory video.
The Cradle to Cradle Inspired Lab is an interdisciplinary platform, established at the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture, in order to connect students and public, private and academic partners who show interest in positive and healthy design. On this web site the activities of the C2C Inspired Lab are presented, and under Resources references to relevant databases in circular design can be found (formerly known as QualityBase).
