Who IS Emergent Structures?
Emergent Structures is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated changing our society’s perception of waste. We aim to reduce the land-filling of building materials through innovative re-purposing projects. We facilitate collaborations between architects, developers, engineers, contractors, property owners and municipal governments in order to replace short-sighted demolition practices with sustainable deconstruction and re-use strategies. We develop innovative material re-use initiatives that foster community development and highlight the triple bottom line value of material re-purposing.
Through piloting a portfolio of strategies in Savannah, Georgia since 2009, we have developed a comprehensive framework which can be applied by municipalities and large developers, as well as facilitation services which have been designed to successfully apply this framework.
