Materialen

ORIGIN:

production waste:

Cardboard tubes are being discarded by all companies distributing materials from a roll like: tapestry, plastic films, paper

MATERIAL:

They have a few standard lengths like:1,5m /3,2 m /4m and a diameter of 80/150/240 mm, usually they are made of 6 to 10mm thick compressed cardboard and are surpisingly strong.

This forms an interesting waste stream for building. As is proved in Shigeru Ban’s projects.
