Building Made from Recycled Phone Books
Architect Richard Kroeker designed a shed made out of phone books. It was built by architecture students at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. Kroeker writes:
The books form a ready made, insulated building module held in place with sheet metal angles normally used as drywall bead material. Once tensioned, the phone books form a stable wall into which additional layers can be easily screwed. The roof joists are also made of laminated phone books. The finished structure becomes a kind of time capsule, recording the names and numbers of community members.
