New Life

Many times, once an object has served its purpose it is thrown away and disregarded. However, design can provide a way to breathe new life into objects previously regarded as trash. An exemplar of this is The Quarry Garden in Shanghai, which re-purposed an old, and quite ugly quarry. Take a look at the pictures below.

If a quarry can be recreated into something so beautiful, surely design can be applied to most other discarded items to make them something amazing? What quarries are around you, waiting to be infused with new life?
