Second Life: Using Recycled Materials For Architecture

Second Life: Using Recycled Materials For Architecture | Interior Design | Scoop.it
Using salvaged stuff not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offers architects materials typically unavailable.

According to the National Association of Homebuilders, “If all the lumber used to build the 1.2 million new homes constructed in the U.S. each year were laid end to end, it would extend 2 million miles—a sobering statistic.

Dutifully sorting waste, separating the metal and plastic from the paper for different recycling streams is part of modern life. Some areas even have food waste collection for community compost.

Architects and designers are taking notice of the opportunities offered by recycling and reuse. Using salvaged materials not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offers architects materials typically unavailable, such as old growth lumber.

Catherine Devin's curator insight, September 27, 2013 2:41 AM

La démarche requiert une structuration des filières de tri, collecte et recyclage sur les matériaux clefs, à une échelle industrielle et régionale si l'on veut généraliser l'emploi des matériaux recyclés et avoir un impact positif significatif sur plusieurs critères de développement durable qu'on pourrait associer au projet.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, September 28, 2013 1:07 PM

We need to find uses for 100% of our "waste" and resources that end up in architectural structures will tend to stick around longer before being recycled yet again.

Project - Brand Comunications & Interior Design For McCann | Interior Design | Scoop.it

Edge created a new workspace for McCann Worldgroup EMEA.

 

The repsonse to this design from McCann was "‘EDGE hit the ground running from the first briefing to the end result. We asked for a warm, open plan, collaborative space and we got so much more."

 

The result is a clean and contemporary workspace that encourages collaboration and interaction, promoting an understanding that creativity is not just the preserve of agency operations, but equally relevant to the corporate world.

Amber Harsnett's insight:

I love how they use agile working space in this office design - very open and modern, clean look!
