The ar­chi­tec­tural prom­ise of Re­flow Fil­a­ment – a 3D print­ing fil­a­ment made solely from plas­tic waste – has just been proven by Bot­tle­top in Lon­don. The brand, which 3D prints lux­ury hand­bags, now boasts a shop in­te­rior en­tirely printed from the ma­te­rial. re­flow­fil­a­ment.com In­su­la­tive Waste­based­bricks from Stonecy­cling are man­u­fac­tured us­ing waste from con­struc­tion and de­mo­li­tion. Avail­able in a va­ri­ety of colour­ways, in­clud­ing Wasabi, Truf­fle, Nougat, Mush­room and Caramel (all shown at right on a project by Am­s­ter­dam’s Ur­ban Echoes), the bricks are ma­chine made or hand­crafted in cus­tom it­er­a­tions. stonecy­cling.com Made from re­cy­cled plas­tic, the pre­fab­ri­cated Plas­ti­croad is lighter and faster to con­struct than tra­di­tional road­ways and lasts up to three times as long. The re­cy­clable mod­ules fea­ture a hol­low core that can store wa­ter to pre­vent flood­ing. The first in­stal­la­tion – a bike path in the Netherlands (shown) – opened this past Septem­ber. plas­ti­croad.eu
