Infrastructure is banal and wondrous, ubiquitous and hidden. The task of presenting it to a general public—in galleries, publications, or events—comes with a unique set of challenges, distinct from architecture and design. On the occasion of the Designing Waste exhibition, curator Andrew Blum will convene a conversation about what we talk about when we talk about infrastructure.

Designing Waste: Strategies for a Zero Waste City explores how we manage waste in our buildings and neighborhoods, and how design can help reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill.
