Waste and Work Colloquium
RISD Architecture
Providence, RI,
April 15, 2024.
Building waste and building labor are routinely devalued, externalized, and rendered invisible through the commodifying, extractive forces of the construction industry. This public colloquium troubles architecture’s thresholds of disposability and asks how workers, building “leftovers,” and collective construction may be recentered in architectural practices.

Guest Speakers:
De Peter Yi - Assistant Professor of Architecture, University of Cincinnati College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning, and founder of Rebuild Collective

Namita Vijay Dharia - Associate Professor, History, Philosophy and the Social Sciences, RISD

Cynthia Deng - Architecture Faculty, Tecnológico de Monterrey (Querétaro) and co-founder of bags

Organized by Amelyn Ng with generous support from the Design Research Seed Fund AY2023-2024. Co-moderated by Amelyn Ng, Gabriel Vergara, and Christine Giorgio. It is a sister event of the D.E.P.O.T. / Gross Domestic Practices exhibition (Fall 2023) and the WASTE/WORKS Advanced Studio (Spring 2024).
