The article presents contemporary concepts for the design and implementation of buildings that take into account, to varying degrees, the 3R principle of Reduce-Reuse-Recycle waste management. Building examples described in the article, contain design solutions with a impact on reducing their harmful impact on the environment throughout the life cycle of the building object. Conclusions from analysis are given.
