Infrastructure is banal and wondrous, ubiquitous and hidden. The task of presenting it to a general public—in galleries, publications, or events—comes with a unique set of challenges, distinct from architecture and design. On the occasion of the Designing Waste exhibition, curator Andrew Blum will convene a conversation about what we talk about when we talk about infrastructure.

Andrew Blum, Curator, Designing Waste

Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City explores how we manage waste in our buildings and neighborhoods, and how design can help reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

The exhibition is based on the Zero Waste Design Guidelines, an expansive document that examines architectural strategies for waste reduction.
