Abstract

This paper is a description of a hybridized digital and analog workflow for reusing waste corrugated cardboard as a building material. The work explores a combination of digital design and analog fabrication tools to create a workflow that would help designers/builders to negotiate with the material variability of waste cardboard. The workflow discussed here was implemented for designing and fabricating a prototypical modular floor panel using different sheets of waste cardboard combined with repurposed wood. The implementation shows that combining digital and analog tools can create a novel approach to material reuse, and facilitate a design/fabrication culture of smart reuse that supports informal building and making at recycling collection centers in developing countries for housing alternatives.
