Description

You could recycle, discard or even burn them of course: cable reels, window frames, washing machines, diapers, crates, carpet tiles, double glazing panels or old buses. The other option is to put them to good use: Superuse. It happens everywhere, albeit on a modest scale. Architects apply these materials in their designs. It requires special attention and new skills, but the resulting images can have quite unexpected qualities.

Superuse, about the construction of new buildings with surplus materials is a practical and inspiring book. It was initiated by the Rotterdam Recyclicity foundation, that specifically addresses this theme. Superuse is richly illustrated with a large number of clear cut examples in the Netherlands and elsewhere. It provides ideas for tools and methods for architects and superuse scouts, such as the harvest map to discover everything useful around a building site. Moreover the theme is considered from the ecological and methodological point of view. Superuse renders the superfluous superfluous.
