WAST[ED]: Working with trash is a co-hosted event with the Center for Architecture, AIANY Committee on the Environment (COTE), and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill examining issues of how to deal with the current state of our environment by living and working, nearby and on top of waste. Using student proposals for waste to energy recycling centers with integrated community parks and facilities along the rapidly developing East River Corridor as a launching point, the discussion brings together a panel of esteemed architects and thinkers who will offer provocative and counterintuitive perspectives on climate change and its impact.
