Building with Waste

Below are some of my photos of the ETH Zurich Pavilion that is part of the IDEAS CITY Festival in New York City. To learn more about the pavilion, which is made from old beverage cartons, head over to World-Architects to see the piece I wrote.

  1. I've seen many examples of using waste as materials for something but this is going beyond my imagination. It's astounding how the artists managed to use the most of the waste to create this architecture.

  2. Building with waste materials becomes more popular nowadays, and seems to be a good sustainable trend. The ETH Zurich Pavilion is a good example about how useful can be proper recycling and thoughtful building. And not only - the pavilion is a real masterpieces of modern architecture.

  3. I think it’s a great idea to reuse or recycle building materials as much as possible. That being said, I hadn’t thought about how old wood products in a house could be converted to mulch if they can’t be used in building. I’m glad that the wood doesn’t just go to waste, though at least it would biodegrade in a landfill. Speaking of which, you mentioned that plasterboard can be toxic in landfills; can it be recycled and made into new plasterboard instead? Thanks.

  4. Using waste materials for further use is definitely a good sign for progress. Basically we are taking the help of recycling process to convert waste materials into used one; so that instead of throw away waste materials we are able to use it for further use. Here in this article also we can get some good taste on how to use waste materials and make it valuable. Thanks for such wonderful concept.
