Upcycling Old Buildings for an Eco-Friendly, Human Rights Respecting and Artistic Future
Constructing a global framework comprised of upcycled buildings for social engagement

A building is a powerful nonverbal statement on the society and culture it represents, as it is a piece of visual art which not only people appreciate, but also exist in. We live, learn and love in architecture, in many cases as a certain group, thus the morphology of the building becomes a sign, symbol and signature of its habitats.

This marvelous power and infinite potential of architecture is in the corenrstone of the Paperstreet project: upcycling old buildings into spaces of deconstructing conventional ideas and ideally reconstructing them. For example, as Jair Bolsonaro vs. the Amazon is not a domestic but global issue, we should exercise a global initiative of taking responsibility in preserving it, so it makes immense sense to establish a coalition of buildings around and beyond the Amazon whose architectural connotations contribute to its preservation.

Architecture has a cause bigger than architecture itself, thus motivating us to pave Paperstreets throughout the world.
