Architects at I-Beam Design constructed a house for refugees made from wooden shipping pallets in a New York warehouse. Palettes are versatile, recyclable, sustainable, and easily assembled. Their transportation cost is negligible because they are used to carry shipments of clothing, food, and medical supplies to disaster areas.
Preliminary documentation of my final show piece. Using pallet wood sourced from building sites and construction yards, i deconstructed them into individual planks to begin building. The connection to their original usage is clearly identifiable without them having to remain in their pallet-shaped forms, this provided a strong enough link to their source without each having to retain their shape.
