Blake Chamberlain is the brains behind this fantastic project ‘Waste Not Want Not’, a vegetative grow wall created out of discarded materials. The concept takes plastic water bottles and wooden pallets salvaged from the installation’s abandoned site in Windsor, Ontario, and strategically scatters them throughout the space. With the aim of creating a powerful statement that demonstrates the value of adaptive reuse, Chamberlain meets his goal with a dynamic wall of growth emerging from scrap materials.

The idea was introduced as part of Chamberlain’s academic studies, during which he chose the decrepit site in Canada to construct the work of foliage and salvaged items. Currently an intern at Architecttura Inc, Chamberlain hopes to share with others how functional installations can inspire other works and perspectives on recycling.
