This House is Made Entirely from Rubbish

Dezeen has a story on “Waste House,” which is the first permanent house made entirely of rubbish in the UK:

Situated on the University of Brighton‘s campus in the English seaside town, the Waste House was designed by BBM director Duncan Baker-Brown together with undergraduate students.

It was constructed by apprentices from social housing maintenance provider Mears, as well as volunteers and students from City College Brighton & Hove.

The architects claim that the Waste House is the UK’s first permanent building constructed from rubbish and Baker-Brown, who is a senior lecturer at the university, said the facility is intended to demonstrate appropriate applications for unheralded materials.
