Blitz-built from salvaged materials (including street signs, phonebooks, and fire hoses), ScrapHouse will open to the public tomorrow (6/2). Built in conjunction with World Environment Day 2005, ScrapHouse is billed as an opportunity to see “creative, real-world solutions for re-use and green building” and “illustrates the possibilities–as well as the challenges–of green building, recycling, and reuse.”
ScrapHouse is located on the Civic Center Plaza at the corner of Grove and Polk and will be open to the public through June 5. Hats off to the organizers, sponsors, and volunteers.
Go see it.
