People usually get annoyed when seeing trash filled in the house. But these people hold different attitude toward trash. Actually they didn’t throw them as other people do, and they also collect the trash from others. What they do with the trash is a huge project—they use these trash to build a house. You didn’t get it wrong, the house actually exist on the University of Brighton’s campus. And these genius people are Duncan Baker-Brown, studio BBM’s director, and undergraduate students at the university. The house is totally built with trash, form the roof to the floor. And this is what people said, one’s trash is another’s treasure. If you also like the “trash house” as much as I do, share it with others.
The trash house deserves its name, because all the materials are literally trash, including the walls which are covered by used carpet tiles and are insulated with junk, such as floppy discs and toothbrushes.
But the complete house do look great.
Actually there’s no such a trash house before in the UK, according to the architects.
The motivation of such a house is to tell people that trash can do much more than people thought.
And by putting these trash to use, they are valued once again.
“It’s about proving that you can build something with other people’s stuff, and that you can make a permanent building out of rubbish,” Baker-Brown told Dezeen.
It’s a real challenge to get all this done.
But it all worth it.
This is the window of the house, insulated.
The materials put inside it.
Over the next few years, the house’s energy efficiency will be tested.
This could be the future… and it could save the environment.
