Designing Out Waste (2019) is a project that was instigated by a collaboration between the Laboratory for Integrative Design (LID) and GXN Innovation, 3XN’s green research branch, which aimed to explore possibilities in transforming and upcycling material banks through the principles of the circular economy, prefabricated architecture, and digital fabrication. The project critically investigates the issue of construction and demolition (C&D) waste by turning it into a driver for façade textures through the concept of robotically refabricating waste materials into high performance architectural screens.
