Old is New Again: 20 Upcycled Telephone Booths




With the advent of mobile telephones, the traditional telephone booth has become an iconc dinosaur of a by-gone era.

Over the past 15 years, British Telecom removed or decommissioned over 30,000 of the memorable red phone booths we’ve seen on London streets and in many movies too. In the US too, the phone booth has been on the decline.

Not all have been trashed or demolished, some have found innovative ways to “upcycle” old booths into pop-up businesses, for a new function or to transform them into extraordinary art pieces.


Here are 20 upcycled phone booths that Ansaback discovered and compiled into a handy graphic.
