Designer WooJai Lee is creating bricks from recycled newspapers. He creates PaperBricks by taking "discarded newspapers into a pulp, mixes in wood glue, and presses it into molds to form bricks that look like concrete masonry units," Selin Ashaboglu writes for ProSales' sister publication, ARCHITECT.
