While our concept of WASTE keeps human systems tidy, its treatment illustrates human and interspecies hierarchies globally. To become a tradeable energy source, waste undergoes massive speculation and irreversible physical transformation of its fraction of organic carbon, an element essential to Life.


We invite students of all backgrounds to come together in this interdisciplinary think tank and investigate the political and economical implications of our current organic waste system. Through our combined knowledge and expertise and fueled by curiosity, we will develop experimental counter-strategies in local resource treatment and nurture our sensibility towards the natural motion of organic matter.


Aging panel housing is prevalent throughout Berlin and makes up a large fraction of housing in the densest neighborhoods. We focus our efforts on four adjacent courtyards in a post-socialist neighbourhood North of Berlin Ostbahnhof as a case study for potential city-wide application.
