The Brighton Waste House

Research output: Non-textual outputDesign

Abstract

Researchers from Architecture and Design are working with the Waste and Energy Research Group at the University of Brighton to design and build the UK's first permanent research facility made entirely from surplus and waste materials. The project highlights waste as a valuable resource; drawing attention to the fact that most waste material is buried or burnt or shipped to third world where it is not appropriately disposed of. It also asks how can the design and the construction of The Waste house be undertaken in a completely open inclusive manner engaging with young adults from outside the academic community, for example students from City College Brighton and Hove studying construction trades, apprentices under the direction of The Mears Group, students from The Faculty of Arts as well as pupils from local primary & secondary schools.
