The degradable city applies systems and materials with a circular life cycle within the Brisbane CBD to mitigate waste and pollution. This project is explored through three audio visual acts. Act 1: The Pillaging. An experimental, provocation piece in response to the linear model of consumption and use of resources within the built environment. Act 2: Organica – the degradable city. A material catalogue exploring a few exemplar materials that have a circular life cycle that can applied to the degradable city concept. Act 3: Organica – closing the loop. This act conveys design possibilities of the Brisbane CBD by applying systems and materials with circular life cycles.
