REUSING AND RECYCLING OF WASTE PAPER IN THE CONFIGURATION AND ARCHITECTURAL EDUCATION

Helwan University (EGYPT)
Reusing and recycling waste is considered as an international trend in different fields. In the education process, especially in architectural education there is a need to a large amount of educational resources. Egypt suffers from using old traditional and solid theoretical outdated methods for teaching which lacks both practical and applied parts and mainly depends on theoretical imagination only and ignores dimensions and proportions fitting which leads to suppressing the innovation power of learners and consequently giving low quality of education.. In the meantime, these methods consumes a lot of educational resources (paper products) leaving a huge amount of paper waste. Many innovative learning ideas and strategies for improving the quality of architectural education with minimum cost and minimum impact on the environment using paper waste are available today. However, there exists little research work that addresses this area.

This research aims to propose a novel approach that addresses the problem of educational resources deficiency and low quality of architectural education in Egypt. This is envisaged to be achieved by recycling and reusing paper waste coming from traditional teaching methods of architecture. This study adopted a methodology which directly corresponds to the stated objective. .It is based on field analysis of existing causes of the problem and gives new solutions for improving architectural education in addition to innovating new strategies that increase students’ creativity, innovation power and imagination ability to dimensions and proportions. This approach decreases the consumed educational resources and saves the environment. Some international experiences in this field are presented as well as the author's experience in architectural learning tools Finally, a case study together with examples of studio projects are presented.
