At IIDEX: Dumpster-Diving Design Students

Setting up a trade show the size of IIDEX generates a lot of garbage. The organizers had the bright idea of setting up a charrette for students of design schools in the area, who has 24 hours to go through the dumpsters from the setup and prepare a sculpture.

My favorite was this green wall being built by students from Ryerson University School of Architecture.
