About the ASBP 2020 Reuse Summit

In the UK and Europe, more attention is being placed on the circular economy in the building sector, and with that is a growing emphasis on reuse.

The inaugural ASBP Reuse Summit where we will bring together a wide range of experts to discuss the practicalities of reuse, through the presentation of case studies, practical applications and product solutions.

As a focus for the event, we will use the ‘shearing layers concept’, which divides a building into layers based on their longevity and lifespan. Shearing layers is a concept coined by architect Frank Duffy, which was later elaborated by Stewart Brand in his book, How Buildings Learn: What Happens After They’re Built (Brand, 1994).

Our event will showcase innovative reuse case studies and examples for each of the 6 layers.
