RE-USE.EU was created to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, expertise, experiences in material engineering, design, architecture, and city-making.
In the modern era, architecture and the building industry are creating thirty percent of waste worldwide. Waste in nature does not exist, and we believe that from nature, we can still learn how to analyze and improve our production cycles, saving resources and decreasing the impact we have on the planet.
“Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.”
Powered by oil, we have dug out more than enough resources.
Now it is time to reuse and cascade the materials we have around us through endless loops of design and re-design.”
Photo & Video
We believe in the documentation of projects and case-studies as a catalyst to disseminate the practice of creative reuse. We like to execute it through photography, film, and interviews. We are currently displaying our content, but we invite professionals to submit curated content.
Knowledge is Power
Documentation of projects and case-studies needs to be executed, curated, analyzed, edited, and discussed to gain new awareness regarding their potential. Waste streams occur worldwide in the same or similar patterns; therefore, we believe in sharing ideas and sustainable solutions.
Our expertise lies in both communication and project management. Project reports and press-releases are the main goals to reach a good overview of the work done and invìcrease the chance of publication across our network and our social media.
Waste to Treasure
To disseminate the practice of RE-USE we have created and tested some educational modules that cover different both regulations and practical solutions. In the form of a seminar, our theoretical module includes three main sections: opening and inspirational session, regulatory session, introduction to material harvest, and adaptive design.
Knowledge is Power
The most effective way to implement our action is to combine lectures with practical workshops for material harvesting and prototyping. Harvest Map has been used in various European countries, allowing architects and designers to connect with local companies and institutions to provide the new material sources.
Design & Build
Design as Politics
Prototyping is the most effective way to evaluate the potential of new material streams.Together we can sustainably improve our cities. Material harvesting, prototyping, and construction mean to respond to our local needs with a new approach.
RE-USE.EU was founded in 2017 by Denis Guzzo, who is mainly publishing his own work and connecting professionals; contributing as writer and content manager.
is a documentary artist and producer who graduated in communication design from the Royal Academy of Arts in Te Hague, the Netherlands, in 2010.
He intensively documented the work of Superuse for teen years now. His work has been exhibited and screened internationally.
His photographs were published in magazines and platforms such as A+U, BBC, Icon, Metropolis M, New York Times, Volume, in many books and on book covers.
