Wasteless City

Wasteless City is a hands-on design workshop that was organized and produced by The New Raw for the Honk Kong Design Institute during the visit of the 2nd year architectural students in the city of Rotterdam (21-22 Nov 2016).

Plastic packaging is the largest contributor to plastic pollution. More than 90% of all plastic packaging is made from only four types of thermoplastics (PET, HDPE, LDPE, PP).

The workshop investigated four types of commodity plastics and examined the ability of low- and high tech- fabrication methods to provide new solutions for plastic recycle and develop concepts that follow the principles of circular economy.
