Architects for Change​

Ripple came as a direct response to the staggering amount of paper waste produced by architecture students. The installation was born through self-accountability by realizing what a discarded paper tube meant. Ripple is generated by individually slicing 600 paper tubes which were gathered over a period of 3 months from various print labs in and around our universities. The paper wave is a wakeup call to re-think and re-evaluate our pointless consumption of paper in this digital age.

معماريون من أجل التغيير


جاء تجهيز "موجة" كرد مباشر على الكمية الهائلة من النفايات الورقية التي ينتجها طلاب الهندسة المعمارية. وقد وُلد هذا التجهيزمن خلال المساءلة الذاتية بعد معرفة قيمة الأنبوب الورقي المرمي في سلة النفايات. تم تصميم "موجة" - المقعد - من 600 أنبوب ورقي تم جمعها على فترة لا تتجاوز ثلاثة أشهر من مختلف مراكز الطباعة في جامعاتنا وحولها. "موجة" هي دعوة لإعادة التفكير والتقييم لاستهلاكنا غير المبرر للورق في هذا العصر الرقمي.
