For us, architects' material selection is one of the most crucial choices faced when designing. They fit out their creations, offering safety and shelter, ultimately setting the character and form of a building. Waste materials such as scrap metals, plastics, rubber and other products are generated in substantial quantities every day. Architects have the ability to change how materials are used offering the opportunity to reclaim, re-use and recycle waste materials efficiently and expressively through design. The concept of recycling waste in architecture needs to allow for change in when designing buildings it is necessary to think beyond the current designated use of materials. Using recyclable materials is rapidly becoming an innovative and sustainable staple for architects. With growing concerns about transforming the built environment to be more sustainable, thinking about the entire life cycle of a material becomes vital. Future adaption is critical for all waste because if a material doesn't have the ability to change, it risks facing resource depletion. This project will explore the potential of re-use/recycle of existing waste materials that are predominately sourced from junkyards and automobile scrap.
