The Upcycled World of Superuse Studios
Architects from Superuse Studios in the Netherlands drive around with a trunk full of random bits of trash—pieces of broken windshields, metal offcuts, and bags of coffee grounds. As lead architect Jan Jongert explains in the Guardian, it's a mobile school for teaching upcycling—"part materials library, part case-study bank—and it all fits in the back of a van."
For 15 years, Superuse (formerly known as Architecten 2012) has been figuring out how to interrupt the usual flow of products to the landfill. They've turned old wind turbines into playgrounds and campgrounds, airline seatbelts into belts, and a set of old washing machines into an amazing-looking coffeebar.
Old chairs became a stairway and loft, and old bike parts turned into a moveable stage.
