UniBrick - Prototype One
The UniBrick has been designed for the project Circular Communities For Housing. Using the research fund received from the Dopper Foundation, the first prototype was made, designed in Delft, produced in Rotterdam, with the help of Frans Taminiau, the founder of Community Plastics. The entire process of production is shown in the video below. Six kilos of waste plastic has been recycled to make this brick. 12 liters of oil was used to produce the plastic (2liters oil = 1kg plastic), incinerating this would equal to 72 kg of CO2, an average house produces that much CO2 in 2 days. A 55m2 house can be built using around 2000 of these bricks.
