International Workshop on Waste Architecture 2015

The Sardinia 2015 Symposium promoted a 2-day parallel event on Waste Architecture, a new and relatively unexplored conceptual and design topic which promises to give rise to a lively debate between environmental professionals, and architecture and urban design experts.

The Workshop represented the first of a series of thematic seminars on environmental design and interventions related to the collection, disposal and management of waste. This first appointment will focus mainly on the architectural, functional and landscape rehabilitation of old landfills.
The event was coordinated by ARCOPLAN / Studio associato di ingegneria e architettura with the scientific support of the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Padova.
This initiative is the result of the activity of 'Waste Architecture Platform', a complex project conceived as a container of initiatives devoted to environmental architecture in connection with interventions concerning the collection, disposal and management of waste.
