Cable drums, old window frames, washing machines, nappies, plastic crates, carpet tiles, crashed planes; you can throw them away, burn them or… do something useful with them. And that does happen: there are architects everywhere who incorporate such materials in their designs. It can be tough going at times but it saves costs and often leads to surprising imagery and design solutions. SuperUse. Constructing new buildings from salvaged surplus materials is a practical and inspiring book about recycling superfluous stuff. Recyclicity, a Rotterdam-based foundation that champions this cause, is one of the pioneers in this field along with 2012 Architecten. This thoroughly readable book is lavishly illustrated with 15 clearly and concisely presented examples from the Netherlands and beyond. It gives extensive coverage to the ecological and economic aspects of this subject. SuperUse makes surplus superfluous!
