A collaborative proposal by Clark Bardsley Design (CBD) and Mitchener Architecture and Design (MAAD) has won funding to produce designs with waste material for a major new project by social enterprise Rekindle. The cross-disciplinary team was one of five selected by a panel of international experts from 32 submissions across New Zealand.
The project - named Resource: Rise Again - aims to create new solutions for resources that industry currently pays to dispose of in landfill. It is the first time that a research and design program has been established in New Zealand specifically to address waste through reuse solutions. The large new body of research and design solutions will be exhibited in Christchurch in October 2016, and Auckland at Objectspace in 2017.
