TOITURE

Toiture is an assembly of soles found on the waste tips of Ouagadougou. The soles are cleaned and then cut using a simple template. The cut-out sections make it possible to assemble these «tiles» with no need for any additional materials. The roof can be used to shelter from the rain or the African sun. If we reclaimed all of the flip-flop soles from waste tips, we could cover a surface area of over 100.000 m2 every year. By reusing this waste, we have created a cheap and simple product.


materials: recycled flip-flop soles
dimensions: variable
