Candy Colored Copenhagen Pavilion Made of Reclaimed Plexiglass
Fruin takes much of his inspiration from found objects and his urban environment and focuses on the overlooked or discarded remnants of society. The Kolonihavehus is a 12 x 12 x 14 house inspired by a garden shed originally intended to give state workers a refuge from cramped living conditions in the city.
The structure is made from a series of 30 individual panels welded together out of angle iron and fitted with multi-colored scraps of plexiglass ranging in size from 2×2 inches, to 24×36 inches. All of the recycled plexiglass was found or scavenged from a variety of sources, like a defunct plexi distributorship outside of Copenhagen, a closing picture framing shop, the basement of the Danish State Art Workshops, and the dumpsters outside the Danish Architecture Center.
