London, UK - THIS morning Mark McGowan appeared at Sans Walk above the old House of Detention and rolled past the old prison and other reclaimed doors from Architectural Forum in Islington. Artist Gini Coates was also there with some of her art doors, which sell for 1,000 pounds. All of these doors will be at the Salvo Fair.

In the UK 2 million reusable doors are thrown away every year. Many are now recycled by being chipped, mulched, composted and burnt. But they should be reclaimed and reused. Recycling is subsidised by the taxpayer. Reuse is not.
