Brief: Designing in a Circular Economy with PVC
Tectum is a pre-fabricated roofing system made up of used PVC pipes recycled into overlapping half round tiles and a rain catching system to efficiently store and reuse water. The half round tiling system insulates the roof from leaks and drives rainwater down to the gutter where it is then stored into a tank made of a large PVC pipe. Tectum is suited for low income housing, pre-fabricated homes, agricultural buildings, and industrial factories that use water in their processes.
