Huge Monument to Be Made Using NYC Garbage


Terreform 1, a non-profit design group that attempts to promote eco-friendly design in cities, has recently presented the design of a large-scale monument, which the group is going to create from garbage that is produced each average day in New York City in one hour.

The project of Terreform 1 is dubbed Rapid Re(f)use and it would be interesting to note that the One Hour Tower will include the New York Statue of Liberty in a negative silhouette.

In order to be able to use the garbage, the design group decided to use automated robotic 3D printers that are modified to process the garbage, informs Designboom.

Metal will be the primary material, while organic compounds will be used to create temporary scaffolds.
