Earlier this spring we featured The Art of Solid Waste, a public art project at a solid waste transfer station in Phoenix, Arizona, by photographer Paho Mann, that illuminates the nature of what we throw away. Here architect Alejandro Bahamón and artist Maria Camilo Sanjinés spotlight an important emerging trend — the reuse of waste in works of architecture. The projects range widely in scale and material, from a hikers’ refuge in the Chilean Patagonia constructed from discarded timber, to school additions in Cape Town that repurpose old tires, to a public art project assembled from old refrigerators.
