From July to September 2017, FabBRICK entered an experimentation phase at the Pavillon de l'Arsenal to transform t-shirts made from unusable cotton into construction material.
By working together with a textile-sorting centre, FabBRICK proposes to create bricks made from t-shirts. These used-cotton t-shirts, bound with a natural binder and then compressed in a made-to-measure mould become an innovative, ecological material. These insulating, structural, auto-blocking bricks can then be used to partition our homes.
