Kerkrade Journal
Short description
The UIA Expert unveils Kerkrade’s initial achievements in the first journal.

Kerkrade’s Super Circular Estate has made significant progress up to now. UIA Expert Elma Durmisevic writes how “during the first year of the project important circular building features have been tested in order to set up a framework for the implementation stage. The primarily focus was on: Testing deconstruction technics, testing material composition of building, testing reusability of building components and materials, developing the framework for registration of materials and track and trace system and developing and testing the framework for resident’s participation. These activities have created the basis for the next phase of experiment which will deal with the implementation of techniques and tools that have been shaped in previous months.”
