Design for disassembly : an architectural strategy

Crowther, Philip (1999) Design for disassembly : an architectural strategy. In Ganis, Mary (Ed.) Design for Sustainability, Queensland University of Technology, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, QLD, pp. 27-33.


A study of historic examples of buildings that were designed for disassembly reveals a number of important lessons in the technology employed. These lessons can inform designers such that they may better design for disassembly to attempt to increase the rates of reuse and recycling in the building industry.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
