We live in a time of economic and financial crises and yet behave as if the supply of raw materials, land, air and water were infinite. Awareness of resources and dealing with garbage are important for processes of self-empowerment. At the same time garbage is a global business and a challenge for urban administrations. How does Vienna manage its garbage and its resources? What are the perspectives for the future? How can architecture and design products be made out of garbage?
