Too often we design products with little regard for what happens to them after we are finished using them. Leaving them to waste is “incomplete design”!
This course – Towards Circlular Product Design – tackles the transition from our linear ‘take-make-waste’ economy to the opposite >> a circular economy where the products loop back into the production system, first of all using repair, refurbishment, remanufacturing and furthermore using recapturing resources, extending their useful life and preventing waste.
This course includes a series of lectures and four short workshops:
1. Design for dis-assembly in a “Teardown Lab”
2. Playing with solar PV products
3. Circular business models
4. Designing Cradle to Cradle (C2C) products Cradle to Cradle is a key circular design strategy. We explore C2C with a qualified expert and redesign a product/service according to C2C principles.
*TU Delft has a full line of online and on-campus opportunities.
