This second series expands and extends MakingPlaces’s first talks series from leading figures in the fields of sustainability and architecture into waste, natural and local materials, making, remaking and re-use.
Duncan Baker-Brown – 26th June, 7.30pm – Elephant & Castle*
Duncan Baker-Brown, one half of the founders of Lewes’s own
BBM Sustainable Design, will talk about the practice’s Wastehouse collaboration with Brighton University. The Wastehouse has been made almost completely out of second hand re-used materials, including, for instance, 20 000 toothbrushes! Duncan will talk about how the planet of waste could become common place in building culture, and compare re-use, recycling, and upcycling with natural renewable materials.
* The talks take place in the upstairs events room of the pub (map here). Drinks available at the bar, suggested donation £3.00.
