Kyle Hughes-Odgers created this abstract building facade with his artwork Order-Disorder. Made with 100% recycled hand cut glass tiles and paint, to illustrate and inspire ideas around recycling ideology and practice, exploring themes of journey and sustainability. The work is a combination of chaotic painted pattern areas which become more ordered across various elevations of the building, ending in a 5m x 3m recycled glass tile mosaic. The artwork is 12.5m at its tallest point and 60m in total width.
The largest recycling centre in the Southern Hemisphere, this new Cleanaway Materials Recycling Plant is situated on Hyne Road in South Guildford. The site is surrounded by other industrial premises and is bordered on the South Eastern side by the Great Eastern Highway Bypass.
