The Reversible Experience Modules (REMs) are an example of a flexible and circular building.The REMs exhibition exists of building materials and products, all optimized for healthy use and reuse. Together they form a space that resembles parts of actual buildings, with a hallway, an office area, a home area and an outside area. Visitors use the material passports to dismantle and rebuild parts of the exhibition themselves. They experience the benefits of building for reuse, and see what material passports make possible.

The objective of the REMs exhibition is to let the visitor experience how circular construction works, with what materials and products it is already possible, and how Material Passports support circularity; from the design phase of products and buildings to the recycling phase.

Visitors can get to work themselves with modular, detachable and Cradle to Cradle designed products and systems. Each product has a Material Passport that is accessible to visitors by scanning the products with their own mobile phone! The passports give access to all information that supports the circular use of materials and buildings.
