Designing Waste, Presented by Harvard Business School
Event Description

Can waste become the raw material for a better designed, less exploitative, more beautiful world? The waste generated in designing and making products and building cities has often been an afterthought of intensely consumptive cultures. In this talk Witt will share approaches to flip this paradigm. From computational quilting to extreme waste reuse, new technologies like machine vision and artificial intelligence offer the potential to combine systemic thinking with creative invention and to create a less wasteful and more livable world.
