Upcycle Studios enables a circular economy solution for the construction industry. It presents a solution for sustainable architecture by “up-cycling” building materials.
The Jury says
This project demonstrates how a circular economy can be established enabling new buildings to be created from “up-cycled” materials. The building industry generates a huge amount of waste – up to 35% of all waste globally comes from the construction industry. Therefore, real projects that address this issue are timely and important. The idea, in itself, is not new but Upcycle Studios demonstrates good design, materials innovation and process documentation that is highly praiseworthy and sets a great example for others to follow and join.
