What a card

November 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

As we get going on the holiday gift giving, we’ll be unwrapping paper and tossing boxes like mad.  Made me think of the materials we are plowing though.  Although we toss it aside, it’s worth noting that cardboard has great structural properties.  In 1969, Frank Gehry created a collection of cardboard pieces, a number of which have found their way into museums all over the world.

Makes you wonder what else we could be doing with the materials we no longer need, and which other materials have properties that we typically don’t appreciate.
