Dutch Profiles: 2012Architects

00:05:03 40
The partners of 2012Architects make waste superfluous by reusing everything from washing machines, to car windows, to discarded cable reels, as building materials in their creations.

2012Architects - now called Superuse Studios - suggests not only a new kind of aesthetic and functionality in sustainable architecture, but also a new approach to design. Rather than designing first and finding materials later, they look for materials locally that could be reused - and then design with those materials in mind.
