The ongoing trend to throw away rather than to repair, and to demolish rather than refurbish, has been a topic of discussion and criticism for years. At the same time, resource consumption and the waste continue to increase. In response, students at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich and ETH Zurich are creating innovative and sustainable ways to repair a wide variety of objects. They're using hands-on techniques and digital methods like 3D printing to not only restore but also enhance these items, giving them new life and value. This book showcases a range of these methods and projects, enriched with insights from experts in architecture, preservation, material science, design, production, and traditional crafts.
