Industrial Waste Bin Architecture

  • Over the last years we’ve encountered a continuous stream of pop-up architecture constructed out of daily objects. Almost every single household product has been used to create a shelter, pavilion, pop-up construction, temporary house, bar or hotel. For me it’s still unclear whether this is a consequence of the bad economic situation for architects (they simply have no real houses to build) or a direct implementation of the sustainability debate. Anyway, they provide us with funny and inspiring examples of unusual constructions. I discovered this project on Recyclart. It’s called ‘Carapace’ and it was originally made by Canadian artist Brian Jungen at the Frac des Pays de la Loire in France. The structure entirely consists of plastic garbage bins.
