Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City

From June 14 to September 1, 2018, AIA New York Center for Architecture presents Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City which explores how architects, designers, and building professionals can help NYC achieve its goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030. Curated by Andrew Blum, the exhibition focuses on a particular segment of the waste stream: the brief period between when we discard something and it rolls away on the back of a truck.

Concurrent with the exhibition, AIA New York Center for Architecture hosts a series of public programs including a day-long symposium on June 16th. This series of discussion is the occasion to foster exchanges between the city of New York and Paris regarding innovative strategies and best practices: 

  • Among with representatives from New York Cities agencies, Caroline Haas, representative of the City of Paris, is invited to this symposium to tell more about the recycling programs and initiatives she implemented in Paris.
  • Pierre Maurette, architect at Vincent Lavergne Architecture Urbanisme, explains, into a panel discussion of architects, how his current project in Menilmontant (Paris) respects the Zero Design Waste Guidelines.
