From the 2013 National Architecture Conference
Cesare Peeren’s presentation focuses on the creative use of recycling and upcycling of locally found waste in architecture. He demonstrates the abundance of material available for recycling, and discusses the regulatory and industry frameworks which can constrain or enable its re-use. The projects of his practice Superuse Studios shows how we can design and build beautiful, functional and potentially reusable structures for future generations, and how sustainability begins from the designer.

Cesare Peeren: Superuse Studios, Netherlands
Cesare Peeren is co-founder of Rotterdam-based Superuse Studios (formerly 2012Architects). With 15 years’ experience in building for a sustainable society, the firm now comprises four studios, each dedicated to a specific segment of their strategy: superusing available flows and resources and connecting them into urban ecosystems.
The practice is committed to ‘reuse’ as an integral design strategy. It holds that the intrinsic qualities of used materials and location add value if they are incorporated into new products and compositions, and have developed processes for auditing and managing local waste materials for the purposes of innovative design.
Peeren co-authored the book Superuse: Constructing New Architecture by Shortcutting Material Flows (010 Publishers, 2007) and is active in the online community.
