In the Fall 2009 volume of the Perkins+Will Research Journal, they highlight PlanetReuse for our use of, "locally sourced reclaimed materials." They explain what materials can be locally sourced and the benefits of using these materials. To understand what it is that the Perkins+Will Research Journal hopes to accomplish, read on for a short description of their purpose.
"The Perkins+Will Research Journal is dedicated to documenting and presenting practice-related research associated with buildings and their environs. The aim of this journal is to capture and document research questions and methodologies that arise prior, during and after the design process. Original research articles, literature reviews, and case studies have been incorporated into this publication. The unique aspect of this journal is that is conveys practice-oriented research projects aimed at supporting our design and project teams."
