Superuse Studios’ in the Netherlands are a company globally pioneering architecture and design practice in the reuse of ‘waste’ materials in new design solutions.  This is a necessary methodology to transforming to a sustainable society. It limits the environmental impact of architecture and design while opening up ingenious, beautiful and functional design solutions and unlocking latent economic potential from locally available ‘waste’ materials

Pictured here are five redundant windmill blades that have become an extraordinary playground.  Jos de Krieger a partner with the company will join us on October 18th  to share his ideas and insights.
