Boris Duijneveld
Recycle Architecture

Boris Duijneveld’s work follows the principle of waste architecture; designing, sketching and constructing from the readily available materials dependent on his given location. Existing materials and objects are reappropriated and combined, removed from their original function and context to form innovative new designs. Boris has an ability to see the potential of material and form, he asks us to consider the abundance of the ‘things’ we surround ourselves with and their real value.

While at the Nomadic Village Boris will work on a project titled Recycled Architecture, using discarded polyester silos previously used for transporting animal feed he will create a living unit. During the Village the unit will grow dictated by the materials Boris discovers in Wolsingham. Boris will live and sleep in the unit as it alters over time.

Boris Duijneveld is an Urban City Designer and runs the company MUD Projects. He studied at HKU, School of the Arts, Utrecht.
