Reuse and Repurposing as a Design Principle in Architecture
Even though upcycling is a well known design principle, this book is not about design and so you also won’t find questionable so-called solutions of cut plastic bottles turned into planters. On the contrary. This book focusses on reuse in architecture, from cannibal architectures to upcycling ruins to creating building materials out of waste or found objects to encourage sustainable thought and action in architecture to reusing building materials like they did for the incredible building of the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou.
This book is bi-lingual: English and German.
