Domus Academy Presents: Prototyping Ideas—Waste

March 12th 2018
6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M.

@ Base Milano
Via Bergognone 34, Milano

This year’s Prototyping Ideas talks, promoted by Domus Academy, are coming to an end. On March 12, 2018, come help us envision the future of design with the last Prototyping Ideas talk, “Waste.”

It is time for a radical rethinking of the notion of waste. In the past, what was wasted was lost. And much was wasted when resources seemed infinitely abundant. So much was wasted that whole ecosystems lost their equilibrium as waste piled up.

Solid, liquid, and composite waste trashed whole landscapes before anything could be done to avoid it. Seen from the standpoint of the present day, it is hard to believe that only a few brave visionaries warned about the consequences. Our whole planet is now out of joint because of waste. Designers can do much to help alleviate this problem. We can tweak it, one good design at a time.

This talk will be a panel discussion moderated by Alice Rawsthorn with internationally recognized curators and designers who address the issue of waste in their work, including:

  • Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of the Museum of Modern Art in New York
  • Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin of Studio Formafantasma, a design studio based in the Netherlands
