‘Waste Architecture Platform’ is a complex project
conceived as container of initiatives devoted to
environmental architecture in connection with
interventions concerning the collection, disposal
and management of waste


Following on from the interesting experiences of 2015 and 2017 and 2018, Arcoplan Associates is launching the next event of WA Platform, the International Workshop on Waste Architecture / Waste Management in Landscape and Urban Areas conceived as a parallel event of Sardinia 2019, 17th International Waste Management and landfill Symposium, to be held from 30th September to 4th October 2019 with an extimated attendance of 800 delegates from tens of different countries worldwide.
The Workshop consolidates for this third edition a stimulating partnership making the Sardinia Symposium the ideal context in which to discuss Architecture and Waste in an international setting amongst not only environmental experts, but also architects, landscape architects, urban planners, etc…
Waste Architecture is a new and relatively unexplored conceptual and design topic which promises to give rise to a lively debate between environmental professionals, architecture and urban design experts. Read more …

The Workshop will be held at Forte Village Resort on 1-2 October 2019. The first day will be devoted to the presentation of oral contributions organised in thematic sessions lasting 90 minutes, followed by opportunities for discussion and debate.
The detailed programme of the workshop is available for download.

On the second day a practical landscape design lab session will be coordinated by professionals in the field. The workshop will comprise an introductory lesson held by University academics aimed at providing participants with the required basic skills to address the subsequent planning and design topic. Participants will therefore have the opportunity to apply the theoretical notions learnt during the introductory lesson to an actual case study promoted by a company, and to exchange views and opinions with colleagues and experts as part of a working team. The workshop will be coordinated by tutors who will guide each group in the elaboration of a final concept for the valorisation and/or requalification of the proposed facility.
The findings of the workshop will be presented and discussed by participants at the end of the workshop and during a session of Sardinia 2019.
