PANTIN RECYCLING ART CENTRE
TEAM WORK - GALINA MILKOVA, STOYCHO DOBREV
PARIS, FRANCE * 2010 * COMPETITION

Isover glass wool insulation is manufactured from a combination between silica sand and upto 80% recycled post-consumer glass from building regeneration projects or flat glass manufacture that would otherwise goes to landfill. This makes Isover one of the most environmentally sustainable products on the market today.
PHILOSOPHY
The Recycling Art Centre revitalizes Pantin Commune and restores the lost connection between the three existing constants – the industry zone, the resident zone, the canal. The building filters Pantin Commune by recycling and reusing its waste material thus providing a cleaner area and canal water, and available job positions. The Recycling Art Centre becomes the new gravitation spot on the map.
MORPHOLOGY
The concept for a filter finds an architectural form in the leaf. Pantin Recycling Art Centre is an analogue of the structure and work principle of the leaf.
