Communities are constructed outside on our doorsteps, around daily routines that everyone undertakes. What better than a space where one common everyday chore is undertaken by all – bringing out the rubbish.
This daily task holds great potential for natural interaction between people. Combined with spaces to gather and rethink waste it becomes a fun playful activity. It can create a new playful exchange around which communities grow and expand.
The installation was a competition winning research proposal and built as part of the RIBA 'Constructing Communities' season within the London Festival of Architecture.
