Taking on Big Junk

This quarter, the class focused on issues of design and environment and took on LA’s toughest challenges: what to do about mountains of waste. Students have conducted thorough research around waste and pollution, worked in collaboration with the UCLA Office of Sustainability to understand UCLA’s challenges and solutions towards waste management, and created projects that are both useful and amazing from the pile of institutional junk. The projects focused on creating compelling and meaningful messages, delivering them with words in public spaces and documenting them in a publication.
