With the Wasteland-exhibition Lendager Group is showcasing the not so distant reality, where residues and wastes are no longer seen as waste – but as the primary building materials in the development of our cities, homes and communities.
Wasteland poses the questions: what if the resources which we consider as discarded, could be included in the circuit and create beautiful products, houses and cities? What if waste was our largest potential resource?
Wasteland displays existing examples of such a world and points the way for future growth and synergy between design, production, consumption and resources. Building facades of old newspapers, floors of cork stoppers and houses ready for demolition being moved from abandoned regions to big cities are just some examples of the paradigm shift in the built environment. Aesthetics is in the center when new design principles are resulting in beautiful, modern, detail-rich buildings and cities.
The exhibition is based on materials we all know – namely, plastic, wood, concrete, brick, glass and metal. We follow them closely in the process from residue into valuable resources of high architectural and aesthetic quality. Our hope is that this exhibition contributes to a new understanding of waste as a valuable resource in the development of our common future.
