Recycle 4 Change

Published on

This presentation shares the experience of students at Qatar University, College of Engineering, Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, to develop a useful product from recycled materials. Students were required to design and construct a full size chair made from a recycled material of their choice. The materials chosen for this assignment should be easy to find recycled materials. The concept of “Sustainability” was introduced through a design exercise. The goal of this assignment was to increase the students’ awareness of the sustainability concept and possible reuse of discarded materials. The constraint of the assignment were: To use one primary and one secondary available materials, use of minimum glue, tape, adhesive or bonding materials should be used, and that the chair must be able to hold an average size person (70 KGs). The exercise was successful not only inside the design studio and the produced chairs but also of the level of awareness it achieved in the students, their families and colleagues. It is hoped that through other events like this one, more and more awareness is achieved that becomes a daily habit and routine.
