This year's first Monday of October for World Architecture Day & World Habitat Day, coincided with my birthday. Combining both my loves, architecture & crafting (with recycling), I did my part in contributing to the public installation of 'Cardboard City' at The Spring shopping mall. Essentially, it highlighted that basic shelter is every human's right. Min's entry on the project here.
Earlier in the week, I collected plastic soymilk bottles (drank by my colleagues) and asked my friend Alvin from Just Light, to help me wired it up for the installation.
Min coordinated some of his students to build the 'Cardboard City' after closing hours and through to 6am. The lights were installed by Alvin's guys the next morning in time for the launching. Since this was meant to be a work in progress, Joseph and I build a cardboard chair to add to the installation.
I love the sides of the chair which exposes the corrugated sections of the cardboard pieces.
