One man’s meat is another man’s poison, or in another variant, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The latter certainly rings true where the Waste House is concerned. The Waste House was specially constructed at the University Of Brighton campus, where it will make use of waste materials that have been sourced from domestic and construction sites, going to show just how flexible things can be when one puts one’s mind and heart into it.
Garbage doubling up as an environmentally friendly material to build a house is certainly an opportunity that is worth exploring, as it might mean a roof over the head of millions of homeless people worldwide. The Waste House project is touted to be the first permanent British building that was constructed mainly from waste and recycled materials. Right now, the Waste House is an ongoing experiment that intends to prove the maxim that “there is no such thing as waste, just stuff in the wrong place.”
