Abstract

The Mediterranean’s own history, product of a cultural melting pot, lies as a sedimentation on the buildings’ surfaces. Architectural complexes and elements, which in the past were considered material resources and subject to reuse processes, can nowadays be interpreted as results of an unintentional application of circular principles fostering a comprehensive sustainability. Is it possible to recognize the same potential in contemporary design approaches? The strategies focused on resource efficiency could represent, for the Mediterranean architecture, solid roots to draw upon.
