    The latest From Waste to Wonder studio project, conducted by Asst. Prof. Nikole Bouchard, is a three-part exercise that challenges students to identify, locate, quantify and create with various types of waste, this time at a Landscape Urbanism scale.

    Students were asked to identify a type of local waste(s) that they wished to investigate, to identify, locate and quantify these obsolete items via research-driven maps, infographics, diagrams, indexical photographs, interviews, videos, etc.

    As they researched, they were to consider remediation strategies for materials, conditions and sites such as elements (Earth, Wind, Water and Fire/Fuel), demolition debris, vacant lots, post-industrial landscapes, toxic terrain, underutilized/abandoned Infrastructures, organic waste / compost, abandoned quarries and mines, and to develop design proposals.
