sanctuary of plastic

As a response to China’s increasing battle with plastic, this project identifies the value of recycled plastic by proposing the library as an interactive space focused around environmental awareness and education. The project both exhibits and invites participation in the process of turning waste plastic into usable building elements. The PET machine in the entry tunnel converts plastic bottles into pellets that can be given new life through the makerspace machines. This community center encourages knowledge exchange as a sanctuary for plastic that celebrates the potential for a socially-conscious greener future.

Proposal in collaboration with Square Feet Studio and Hillworks *Graphics were solo work* 34


Only minutes from downtown Charleston, Laurel Island has undergone many failed attempts to revitalize what was previously a waste disposal site for many years. Square Feet Studio’s RFP submission - consisting of in-depth ecological research, pedestrian-friendly streestscapes, and Charleston vernacular styles - won the favor of contractors at an in-person presentation.
