Designing Waste

Thursday, Jun 14, 2018

Every day, tens of thousands of trucks filled with food, clothing + other goods arrive in NYC to be delivered, unpacked + consumed. And every day, approximately 24,000 tons of discarded materials leave the city as waste. Waste management costs NYC over a billion dollars every year. To combat this problem, in 2014, the city announced a Zero Waste plan to reduce the amount of discards sent to landfills by 90% by 2030.

Desiging Waste examines the architecture of the City's gray spaces for trash—the overlooked building spaces where waste is managed. This is when waste is closest to us, when it’s sorted + stored. And this is where architects, designers + building professionals have agency to transform the waste system.

The exhibition is based on the Zero Waste Design Guidelines, an expansive document that examines architectural strategies for waste reduction.

#pilesoftrash
Visitors are invited to document the piles of trash so familiar to our city, helping create an archive of New York City’s curbside shame. Photos posted to Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #pilesoftrash will be collected and exhibited for the duration of the exhibition using software powered by Luster.
