Paper Tower

Ever wondered what to do with all your used up tubes of toilet tissue? Why not build a tower?

It might take some time to match up to this 22m high monstrosity, but it’s worth a shot. Currently standing outside Royal Festival Hall to ‘challenge  the perceptions of the everyday materials used’, it is certainly an eyecatcher. And it’s always nice to see things like this being done with recyclable, renewable materials. The artist, Shigeru Ban, has built a number of similar installations around the world.

Now if we could only find a way to fill in all those holes, we could be on to a new and renewable form of housing.
