Waste to Wealth

BY ANDREW O'SULLIVAN
@ PECHAKUCHA URBAN INNOVATION MONTH ON APR 01, 2014

Man on a mission Andrew O’Sullivan believes the word “recycle” to be a bad one. He poetically delves into his lifetime effort and campaigns against “the throw-away” lifestyle that we’ve become. We create waste, break it down, and re-sell it, but Andrew shows us that re-use is much more powerful and sustainable in the long run.

Let's Build a City

BY VIRGIL IERUBINO
@ VOL 6 ON SEP 13, 2016

Virgil Ierubino asks if you could build a city from the ground up, how would you do it? I don't just mean the buildings. By 'city' I mean the collection of humans and facilities and services and systems that collectively form a functioning society. Would you make different decisions than those which are made for us, all around us, every day? Or, realising that this question assumes you are in a position of considerable power, maybe you'd just go nuts?

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 11th, 2017.
