Material interactions - a center for recombinant waste
More InformationShow full item record
Issues relating to solid waste management and human interaction thrive as a current and future challenge for human existence. Due to the abundance of waste produced within our community, utilizing our advancements in new technology will enable a more sustainable environment. The abundance of waste produced around the world has negatively impacted our health, safety, and welfare for our current generation and those to come. A shift is required in our environmental understanding, social interactions, and economical practices in order to increase the use of by-products and other disregarded resources. As a Recombinant Material Waste Research Center, this 56,300 SF project defines the community’s current and future relationship with material waste in Fargo, North Dakota. Through the innovation of new materials, the proposed facility would allow a better understanding of the collaboration and material management required in order to successfully manage solid waste in the Fargo Community. Architectural design along with the skills of a diverse set of occupations is a key component in the realization of material innovation and building design. These traits will guide future generations and myself towards a more cyclical and environmentally receptive process for material waste management.
