Deconstructing waste & reconstructing community
Occupying a disused grain silo in London's Docklands, this proposal utilises the derelict, industrial fabric of the past and celebrates the hands-on spirit of the site's history. Reinvigorating the former factory as a means to deconstruct local discarded ceramic objects and surrounding building waste such as bricks, tiles and concrete to be used as new material for a nexus of experimental ceramic-making workshops. Using rubble from the area to construct and shape the future of the area; the deconstruction of waste in the reconstruction of community.
