My design project is based on my building design called the “hidden gems up-cycling and community hub”. My work is split into two parts entitled ‘Distil’ and ‘Instil’. The concept behind the design is about encouraging the public to interact and participate with not only the process of upcycling and recycling but to also enjoy the journey behind it. Both portfolios encompass sustainability, creative remaking, reuse and recycling of waste materials. Forgotten stories of the Anthropocene and trash are embedded within the design to create an impactful atmosphere. My design aims to explain what happens to waste materials after they’re thrown away, how these are reused and what happens to the environment as depicted by the ‘Hidden gems upcycling and community hub’. By involving the community and raising awareness of the whole up-cycling process, the impact of waste on the environment can be minimised.
