the way we live



architechnophilia, a wonderful blog we’ve mentioned before, had another great link the other day. superuse is a website that celebrates the unique and creative reuse and recycling of objects and products. i love the ingenuity presented on this site. some of my favorite examples are the “billbirdhouse” (pictured above) in which road and street signs were reused in order to make brilliantly colored birdhouses and the “airconditioning” (pictured below) in which old air ducts were reclaimed in order to make an very interesting office desk. it isn’t just the fact that superuse documents recycling projects that makes it so great, it’s the fact that they celebrate the artistic ingenuity and creativity of reusing materials. head over and check it out.
