Stage 4

The Reclaimed Brick Factory

This project was based off heavy research into the up-cycling of industrial materials, mainly focusing on the most common UK building material, brick.

The project was located in South East London, primarily focussing on Old Kent Road, a major thoroughfare through London. Old Kent Road’s current redevelopment allowed me to observe just how much industrial materials were being thrown out, which led me to research the circular economy of construction materials.

My final proposal presented a brick factory focusing on the process of reclamation, located at the heart of Old Kent Road in the middle of its redevelopment areas. The factory is also adjoined to an old civic centre which I re-purposed as a trade centre for industrial materials.
