Designing Waste – Calendar – AIA New York / Center for Architecture

Please join us for a symposium for Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City, an exhibition based on the Zero Waste Design Guidelines. Designing Waste explores how architects, designers, and building professionals can help NYC achieve its goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030, focusing 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.
