In accordance with the principles of Cradle-to-Cradle all materials used in the fan shaped building are either fully recyclable or biodegradable. Hence, it is a building design that takes on the ambition to eliminate the concept of waste.
Eliminating waste means that everything must be part of a circulation. Thus, the building is designed for disassembly and constructed of defined recyclable materials. Solar energy is producing the energy consumed in the building, rain water is collected, and the used water is biologically cleaned and reused. Integrated green houses produce organic fruits and vegetables for the hotel restaurant. Further, the daily material flows from running the center is either recycled or composted.
The center is a project under continuous development. Hence, the building will always introduce the newest sustainable solutions on biodiversity, materials, energy, water, and waste.
