An architectural research project exploring the manufacture of bio-based waste into construction materials in North Portugal
RE. sourcing RE. distributing Construction Materials
am investigating the biological wastes of our cities, the rural and industries;
researching manufacturing techniques, maker-spaces and waste producers.
I aim to; reduce our landfills, support bio-diversity, remove the need for
oil-based products, to support and create local businesses to construction
By working alongside construction sites, auditing and mapping the area for its local
biological waste, I suggest construction materials to a specific local area. The following "Recipe Book of North Portugal, Abundant Biological Wastes for
Construction Materials", is a sustainable materials guide accompanying the design of a factory
manufacturing these materials.
I imagine the architectural applications of these materials and I want to scale them up; collecting, testing, and manufacturing them.
