"The intention here has been to find out how far it ts possible to make practical use of metal, cardboard, paper, wood or plastic refuses which all cities have to dispose of daily in enormous quantities. ln this small house the two end walls are made of old food cans collected from canteens, restaurants, etc. They are spot-welded and have a lightweight cement infill. lnsolation can be provided by shredded paper from office refuse. The floor rests on cement slabs (chips salvaged from building-site refuse) and is made from beer-crates. The outer shell is made of corrugated plastic sheet, which is damaged and therefore cheap. lnterior cladding is in packing case cardboard."
