Following the incredible success of the International Workshop on Waste Architecture, a parallel event of the Sardinia 2015 Symposium, we are glad to announce that Waste Architecture has been included in the main programme of Sardinia 2017.
Waste Architecture is 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 purpose of the oral sessions dedicated to Waste Architecture is to stimulate a debate on architecture for the environment and, more specifically, the architecture of major works related to Waste Management.
In this prestigious context, the thematic sessions will provide the setting for in-depth discussion on this specific topic, aimed not only at environmental professionals, but also experts in architecture, and landscape design, and will represent an opportunity to come into contact with the world-leading experts in the field.
The following topics, among others, will be extensively discussed:
→ Functional requalification of old and new landfill sites
→ Landfill mining for land reuse and remediation of degraded land
→ Integration of pneumatic waste collection system in the urban space
→ Design of facilities for separate collection systems
→ Locations for waste disposal and relationships with the city
→ Waste Architecture and circular economy (Reuse Centres, transfer stations …)
→ Architecture of buildings for waste treatment
Researchers and professionals in the field are invited to contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract focussing on one or more of the topics of interest.
Offers of workshop proposals are also welcome.
WA section at Sardinia 2017 is coordinated by Arcoplan.
Submit your abstract by 3rd april 2017!
