Bricks and Mortar

Bricks and Mortar

Adam Macdonald

Sustainability. A word that is generating debate and conflict from windfarms to wildlife conservation. Does it need to be as conflicting? As a design, I have created a new material, concrete. It holds together our society, the houses made from concrete hold together our communities. But looking toward the future, there is a need for more sustainable materials to hold the community together. I have substituted sand for throwaway sea shells from sea food restaurants. They allowed me to take the sea shells they were throwing in the rubbish bin and use them to create this new sustainable material. I value the future, we need to look after other generations, not just focus selfishly on ourselves. This new material is important.
