Superuse Studios' in the Netherlands are a company globally pioneering architecture and design practice in the reuse of ‘waste’ materials in new design solutions. This is a necessary methodology to transforming to a sustainable society. It limits the environmental impact of architecture and design while opening up ingenious, beautiful and functional design solutions and unlocking latent economic potential from locally available ‘waste’ materials.

  • Understanding the four main sources of materials, their pros and cons, and how they can be put to ‘superuse’ in architecture, landscape and urban design
  • Learning about the systems and platforms Superuse Studios (and others) have designed to support their way of thinking and can be used globally to make your personal and business endeavours more environmentally conscious
  • This workshop is offered to architects, design professionals, and interior architects. It will offer you a new and innovative tool to help you to create truly sustainable projects, benefit local communities, and stimulate new business.
