The ScrapHouse was a unique example of reuse in the greatest sense of the term. An array of materials–collected from salvage yards, dumps, or collected from waste piles at active construction sites–was temporarily transformed into an one-bedroom demonstration house. Scraphouse demonstrates that materials that are thrown away, or considered to be junk, still have an effective life-span. One person’s trash is someone else’s treasure.
The ScrapHouse was located on Civic Center Plaza, at the corner of Grove and Polk Streets, immediately in front of San Francisco City Hall.
