RAPID RE(F)USE:
WASTE TO RESOURCE
CITY 2120

With our method, we can
remake seven entirely
new Manhattan islands at
full scale.  Automated
robot 3d printers are
modified to process trash
and complete this task
within decades.  These
robots are based on
existing techniques
commonly found in
industrial waste
compaction devices.  
Instead of machines that
crush objects into cubes,
these devices have jaws
that make simple shape
grammars for assembly.  
Different materials serve
specified purposes;
plastic for fenestration,
organic compounds for
temporary scaffolds,
metals for primary
structures, and etc.  
Eventually, the future city
makes no distinction
between waste and
supply.
