Conceived by the Union of Architecture University in Seoul (UAUS), this book examines the environmental impact of discarding of rubbish, and how architecture can address this issue. The construction industry accounts for roughly a third of all waste. Finding alternatives to the existing forms of redevelopment and reconstruction – involving demolishing and rebuilding – means proposing new uses for these materials as well. The theme of the 5th exhibition of UAUS, “Recycling, Never Wasting Architecture”, gave students from each of the nineteen affiliated universities the opportunity to design and realise pavilions using recycled materials, all of which are documented here.
