RECYCLED Paper Theater by Studio Andrew Todd

RECYCLED Paper Theater by Studio Andrew Todd | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Imagine a theater made almost exclusively made of recycled paper and other recycled materials.

Their design has been selectedfor exhibition at the 2013 World Stage Design event in Cardiff, opening in early September.

 

The exterior scaffolding structure is used to erect and brace a massive wall of paper bales.
