terreform 1: rapid re(f)use

 

 

rapid re(f)use is a new project by the new york based architecture organization terreform one. the project is a large scale monument that transforms the garbage produced by new york city in one hour on a typical day. the ‘one hour tower’ is shown to scale with the statue of liberty in the front. the design of the monument would also feature the famous new york statue in a negative silhouette. the monument is part of terreform one’s large project which envision a scenario of reusing all the trash to build infrastructure. ‘automated robot 3d printers are modified to process trash and complete this task… different materials serve specified purposes; plastic for fenestration, organic compounds for temporary scaffolds, metals for primary structures, and etc. eventually, the future city makes no distinction between waste and supply.’
