In A new perspective on waste young architects Carmen van Maercke, Caterina Rosso and Julie Marin take the twentieth-century belt around Antwerp as a case study for their view on waste.
Waste is everywhere. Yet despite being surrounded with rubbish, and producing it in ever-greater quantities, we barely stop to consider its disposal. Van Maercke and Rosso examine the ways in which sustainable urban refuse streams can be generated as an alternative to the existing large-scale industrial waste-processing methods. The twentieth-century belt around Antwerp functions as case study.
