In the week of the Earth Day, Green Transformable Building Lab (GTB Lab) had its first open day and open-air expo organised by IBA Parkstad. Inspiring talks with inhabitants of Heerlen took place, about their views on circular architecture and design for reuse, which they acknowledged in GTB Lab. Their positive views and shared sense of urgency are a great inspiration for the next steps in design and development of this circular light-house in The Netherlands.
