Lisa Kokin - Fou. ''Most of the pieces in the Spines and Fragments series are made from self-help books which I scavenge from the local recycling center. I am continually struck by all the various panaceas promised by the books.

Laguna Chapel: Recycled timber church and community center

The project rebuilds a church in an old lumber town on a lagoon. Wood from the original chapel and other buildings is recycled to erect a modular structure adapted to local timber construction. Respecting the site, the new church and community center define a square for public use, including cultural and educational programs that complement religious activities. The building ensemble uses passive ventilation; rainwater collection; and polluted water from the lagoon is cleaned.

upcycled felted wool scraps are reborn into a SEVEN-layer posie! Still decorated with a vintage button center and sewn by hand. 2-3/4 inch diameter. Sold in packs of 2.
