ARCH Consumption, Waste, and Model-Making

Year: 2014

Grant Amount: $2,000

The UT School of Architecture students are impacted by the rising cost of materials for required design studio courses as well as increasing inefficiencies in model-making and a lack of awareness about consumption and waste problems within the department. The primary goals of this project are to facilitate conversation about the process of model-making and waste, understand the path of waste from the design studio to the end of its life, raise awareness and educate UTSOA, and determine next steps to increase the environmental, economic, and social sustainability of model-making.
