Studio WASTED




Waste is a failure of the imagination.

Imagine if all new school buildings were biodiversity hubs and bushfire-proof sanctuaries, creating beautiful campus environments and community hubs of growth, life and learning.

This is a Master of Architecture studio taught by Frank Burridge at Monash University School of Art, Design & Architecture, exploring wasted materials and circular economy for new education buildings in Victoria.

This is a studio about salvaging resources from industrial & agricultural waste streams to create carbon-negative school buildings that enhance biodiversity on campuses in Victoria.

With over 2000 schools in Victoria, schools represent a significant land holding and opportunity to enhance biodiversity in urban regions.
