Drawings, models, photographs, videos and objects represent recycling as a creative strategy in the exhibition now underway at MAXXI in Rome.

RE CYCLE Strategies for architecture, the city and the planet
The exhibition, open until April 29 2012, is part of MAXXI ? Architettura?s study of contemporary themes in built spaces and the landscape.

The exhibition includes recent projects as well as buildings which might be called historic, represented through models, photographs and drawings such as those by Peter Eisenman and Superstudio, videos such as the ones about recycling abandoned constructions by Frank O. Gehry and Venturi and by Scott Brown and Associates.

Works demonstrating how "recycling" is related to the profession of architect and of artist, including "creative recycling" such as Miniwiz?s plan to cover the EcoARK pavilion in Taipei with recycled PET bottles.
Two installations in the museum?s outdoor spaces reveal the potential of recycling: Maloca by Fernando and Humberto Campana and the officina roma pavilion by the raumlaborberlin collective.
