"Recycling of builts" S.Valtara - K. Moutsatsou

In this paper we try to study issues that have to do with recycling focusing on a variety of basic meanings, like environment and the relationship between man and environment. We use theembodied energy”, thevalueand thecostof the building as tools in our attempt to study the sense of rehabilitation, the adaptation of new use and the new circle of building’s life in relation to recycling. Finally, in order to illustrate our thoughts, we will present two examples of rehabilitation (Tate Modern and Pagganini Hall) and we will comment on their respect towards the principles of recycling.
