Ghigos Group recently turned the disposal of plastic bags into an opportunity to bring life to an unfinished public building. The project takes old shopping bags and turns them into a “dress” or “suit” for architecture. The plastic outfit becomes a new type of covering for the building’s incomplete parts, raising ecological awareness about recycle and reuse, while also giving an identity to a building without a specific function.
