Take the abandoned space under a viaduct, upcycle it and use it to fuel the circular economy's ideas. This is the RE-Circle Machine, a factory that reactivates a neighborhood through its waste.
The RE-Circle Machine project is a story of regeneration, renovation, and revolution of the neighbourhood of Tradeston, Glasgow.
Tradeston can become a global example of a circular economy neighbourhood, where green manufacturing and people coexist healthily for a new interactive, green economy.
The ‘RE-circle Machine’ is a versatile structure made to be easily disassembled, with recyclable materials and on a ‘recycled’ site. The building reuses the space under the M8 Viaduct and aims to become an economic, as well as social, part of the neighbourhood.
The Machine collects waste from the surroundings, it produces recycled raw materials, and it provides spaces for manufacturing clothes and accessories, as well as social and commercial spaces to boost the green business.
This is the RE-Circle Machine, a factory that transforms waste into goods, and an interactive experience where you can learn how not to waste… waste.
