Step inside our children’s exhibition, 'Bring on the waste' and learn about upcycling - how to transform waste into something brand new! Admission is free.

EXHIBITION PERIOD: 26 January - 17 April
LOCATION: Danish Architecture Centre
See opening hours here

What exactly can you use old egg boxes, milk cartons or bicycle tubes for? There are so many fun products that are the result of upcycling - shirts, bags, shoes - you name it.

Upcycling is not just about recycling. It is about transforming waste into something brand new and maybe even better. Upcycling is about recycling things, which would otherwise end up as rubbish, and turning them into something new and exciting.

Explore the world of products and learn, for instance, how to make an entire floor out of corks. Draw inspiration from the Upcycle House. It is constructed entirely out of recycled materials: old containers, polystyrene boxes - not to mention a cut-up skating rink!

In the exhibition you can even help to construct a house out of upcycled materials. We have designed the ground plan. We need you to build the house so we can throw a house-warming party! The house is built mainly out of milk cartons instead of bricks. Meanwhile, in our workshop you can add your own personal touch to your brick.  

In the workshop you can also construct your own little speaker for your mobile phone and take it home as a souvenir!

We look forward to welcoming you to our upcycle community.
