MIT’s new Water Pavilion has been getting lots of press, with a structure created by continuously flowing recycled water, but doesn’t top Amsterdam’s new pavilion made entirely of kitchen sinks. A joint project of 2012 Architecten and Jeanneworks, the structure’s held together by scaffolding and collects rainwater to divert to a garden nearby. 2012 Architecten specializes in reclaimed construction projects such as playgrounds created out of discarded windmill wings, etc. For more info on innovative design, check out the book Superuse: Where Recycling Meets Design.
Not a practical building facade (have you ever tried welding stainless steel?) but a great icon for reclaimed construction. Great pics at Inhabitat.
