Not only does the RAKE Showroom advocate the idea of reusing, it wholly implements this belief into its design and construction.

The RAKE Showroom was built by a group of thirty students from such architecture institutes as Trondheim, Oslo and Bergen. Most of the materials used to build this space came from an office building in the process of being demolished. The students used various windows and doors to build the RAKE Showroom in order to actively illustrate the importance of reusing. Built as a space to exhibit art and architecture, the showroom definitely leads by example.

Take a look at the RAKE Showroom to see how contemporary design can also stay true to the principles of reuse, reduce and recycle.
