Repurposing, also known as adaptive reuse, is the use of products and materials for purposes other than originally intended. Examples include worn out tires fashioned into furniture, candy wrappers turned into handbags, and cardboard canisters used as lampshades. This project invites you to create your own unique repurposed design(s).
How can we develop new uses for old products?
