Rural Studio

Rural Studio  have been working with reused, reclaimed and found materials in the Southern US state of Alabama for several decades. Arguably their most iconic, reuse project is Mason’s Bend Chapel where car window screens make the perfect façade foil for this glass cathedral of the dispossessed. Check the rest of Rural Studio’s site for many other examples, old and new, of how architecture can make sublime virtues out of the art of reuse necessity.
