The cost of demolishing an existing old building can sometimes rival what is spent on building a new structure. Today, there is an established industry of building recyclers that reprocess concrete, metal, glass and wood for use in new ways. But it is a complicated, time consuming and messy job sometimes involving hazardous materials.

ERO is a Concrete Deconstruction Robot concept designed to disassemble reinforced concrete structures and enable the building materials to be re-used for new pre-fabricated concrete buildings.

The artists took to the streets of the Dutch city of Utrecht to put party hats on CCTV cameras in an attempt to draw attention to the culture of surveillance in modern cities. If we only looked above the stores and billboards that line our streets, say Front404, the artists behind the stunt, we’d realize how many cameras are above us.
