8 February 2021

2020 was a strange year. A year ago no one could have ever thought our lives would change so drastically because of a virus. But it has. And now we are wondering how exactly it has changed your opinion on Waste & Architecture.
Last year we sent out a branch poll to find out how important certain topics like the reuse of waste, the use of natural materials or the cost of labour are to you.
