Sheffield School of Architecture: Space of Waste


In late September 2007, Part 2 students at Sheffield School of Architecture began to erect a temporary shed in the city centre. Sourcing all materials from www.whywaste.org.uk, a website offering excess materials from current building projects, the students created an (almost) entirely recycled and cost-free building in under six weeks. The decoration, featuring shapes cut out of plywood panels, came from a local toy manufacturing company, while the roof is made of carpet tiles and the interior features 3m-high bales of packaging waste from Ikea.
