THE MAYFIELD MOTHERSHIP
HOW CAN RECYCLING WASTE BECOME A MODERN METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION?
Each year the urban environments are becoming denser, the ACCUMULATED WASTE is rapidly multiplying and the Earth is getting hotter. Consequently, we are slowly but surely heading towards the apex of destruction. According to Defra analysis, the United Kingdom accounts OVER 200 MILLION TONNES OF ANNUAL WASTE. The purpose of this project is to underline the significance of adopting the philosophy of RECYCLING, REUSING and RE-ADAPTING. As a result, I am putting a focus on a RECYCLING CONCEPT for sustainable architectural design.
I DEMAND REUSING WASTE MATERIALS that could be accommodated in construction to CONSERVE COMPONENTS that could be utilised again. The accumulated waste could be prevented by adopting appropriate design decisions. In nature, the “waste” of one system becomes food for another. Everything could be designed to be DISASSEMBLED and REUTILISZED as high- quality materials for new products as technical nutrients without contamination.
For this purpose, my concept highlights the idea of RECYCLING, REUSING an RE-ADAPTING the WASTE from the streets of Mayfield through the use of simple RECYCLING SYSTEM onsisted of four sites where waste can be stored and afterwards used for temporary structures for the community of Mayfeild, as part of the CIRCULAR ECONOMY that McDonough manifests in his CRADLE TO CRADLE concept.
