Wick Session No8 will bring together practitioners and researchers working in the field of material Re-use.
Artist Folke Köbberling will introduce works from her collaboration with Martin Kaltwasser which extensively engages with the re-use of waste. Moira Lascelles from the Architecture Foundation will present findings of her recent research into Re-Use centres and how they could be applied in East London. Daren Howarth will introduce his experiences with Earthsips, a low carbon, self build passive house, and Thomas Pausz will revisit the Community Shed project which surveyed the self build sheds of the former Manor Gardens allotments site.
The evening will be hosted at the Cre8 Centre in Hackney Wick, who are in the midst of planning the Cre8 Arc, an ambitious self build project which will be build re-using materials from the Olympic site. A short introduction to the Cre8 Arc project will be followed by presentations from the invited guests with enough space for an open exchange.
