Circular economy opens a new domain for architectural design, where architecture is focused on its production and disposal cycles, and the process is intended as the final outcome of the project. The circular paradigm is the product of the political discourse and critical attitude which are globally questioning the use of natural resources and the origins of goods. As a model of production and consumption aiming to recover the retained value in waste and optimize resource utilization, the circular framework is one of the most radical thinking patterns of contemporary age, developing specific cultural and social attitudes.
