Office Building Made From Recycled Paper [Pics]
Dratz & Dratz in Germany have created the 2000 sq ft Paper House to demonstrate alternate building methods.
Berlin-based architects Ben and Daniel Dratz have unveiled a remarkable environmentally-friendly office project by upcycling over 500 bales of compressed, recycled paper from nearby supermarkets. The temporary workspace, aptly named “Paper Office,” measures 2,045 square feet and was built on the grounds of a former mining complex and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Paper Office was the product of a $200,000 grant that Ben and Daniel Dratz earned from Essen’s Zollverein School of Management and Design (ZSMD).
