Event: Producing Waste/Producing Space (3/6-7, Princeton University)

A series of programs on waste and the production of urban space. March 6-7, 2015 / Princeton University

The design of urban space has historically produced a considerable amount of waste, ranging from wastelands to the material detritus of consumption and urban development. The transport and disposal of waste has, in turn, produced important ideas and practices about the design and construction of space. Through a series of interrelated programs, Producing Waste/Producing Space seeks to locate points of intersection between the study of waste and strategies for waste in space. Producing Waste/Producing Space is organized by Mariana Mogilevich (Princeton-Mellon Initiative) and Curt Gambetta (PhD student, Princeton University School of Architecture).
