Recycled resource systems?
Engineers and architects are rethinking the current design of architectural and environmental infrastructure, in favor of regenerative systems that are capable of harnessing wasted energy and resources and redistributing them where needed.
Whether converting the kinetic energy from foot traffic into electricity or recycling grey water for other residential uses, these closed-loop designs help deliver greater efficiencies that lower resource consumption and cut back on costs.

"More and more we are realizing that bringing back the natural habitat where it belongs, will also balance our resources. This trend often starts with the resource itself, such as over-canalized rivers, which cause draught around the riverbanks, and hence flooding and loss of a valuable resource in the rainy season.  A recent example is the LA river, currently encased in concrete, which will be soon returned to its natural state."
