Zero Waste Challenge NYC

 

 

Magnusson Architecture and Planning, PC is proud to be a part of the Zero Waste Challenge hosted by Center for Architecture (AIANY). We aim to reduce our waste to landfill stream by 90%!

 

The Zero Waste Challenge is associated with two other important projects at AIANY and the Center for Architecture. The exhibition “Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City” is on view at the Center for Architecture June 14 – September 1, 2018. The show is based on the Zero Waste Design Guidelines (ZWDG), which were released last fall by AIA New York and address the crucial role that design plays in achieving New York City’s ambitious goal, outlined in #OneNYC, to send zero waste to landfills by 2030. Created with support from The Rockefeller Foundation, the guidelines are a collaboration by the AIANY Committee on the Environment; Kiss + Cathcart, Architects; ClosedLoops; the Foodprint Group; the NYC Department of Sanitation; and other organizations throughout New York City.

 

 

We’re part of a formidable group of competitors.
