ABSTRACT: The Cradle to Cradle (C2C) paradigm is emerging as an important regenerative design approach. C2C is aiming to create a positive footprint of the built environment, beyond carbon neutrality. However, there are very few studies that address the application of the C2C concept in building design. More importantly, there is hardly any documentation processes on methods or tools currently being used to design and evaluate C2C buildings. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to design…
