For thousands of years humans have experimented with various methods of waste disposal-from burning and burying to simply packing up and moving in search of an unscathed environment. Habits of disposal are deeply ingrained in our daily lives, so casual and continual that we rarely ever stop to ponder the big-picture effects on social, spatial and ecological orders. Rethinking the ways in which we produce, collect, discard and reuse our waste, whether it's materials, spaces or places, is essential to ensure a more feasible future. Waste Matters: Adaptive Reuse for Productive Landscapes presents a series of historical and contemporary design ideas that reimagine a range of repurposed materials at diverse scales and in various contexts by exploring methods of hacking, disassembly, reassembly, recycling, adaptive reuse and preservation of the built environment. Waste Matters will inspire designers to sample and rearrange bits of artifacts from the past and present to produce culturally relevant and ecologically sensitive materials, objects, architecture and environments.

Nikole Bouchard's interdisciplinary research and design work straddles the space between art, architecture and landscape to discover ideas that stimulate ecologically sensitive and culturally relevant design interventions. She is an associate professor in the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a critic in the School of Architecture at Yale University.
