Sleek Sustainable Housing By Stephane Malka Architecture
- Charmaine Li
Designed by French architect Stephane Malka, ‘Ame-lot’ is a proposal to create a sleek facade for a student residence in Paris using shipping pallets. Strung together with hinges, hundreds of wooden pallets bend and fold transforming the facade into an elegant structure while using this material in a sustainable way.
In a statement about his work, Malka explains: “In reality, ecological strategies often generate an over-production of materials, becoming energy-vores and clients of factories, the polluters of the world. The real ecological combat is within the reappropriation of materials and experimentations with ready-made objects, far from the so-called benevolence of subsidized agencies.”
