4th Bin was featured at Global Design NYU‘s Collapse: Climate, Cities, & Culture, an exhibition open to the public that focuses on the design community’s response to environmental extremes, using architectural models, design prototypes, drawings, and videos to propose future scenarios to improve the health and well-being for our fragile planet and all of its occupants.

About GLOBAL DESIGN NYU

Since its inception, GLOBAL DESIGN NYU (GDNYU), which was founded by NYU Gallatin professors Peder Anker, Louise Harpman, and Mitchell Joachim in 2011, has created exhibits and symposia that showcase leading-edge, environmentally-oriented design practices from around the world.  GDNYU’s previous exhibitions, Elsewhere Envisioned, took place in New York and London, attracting significant notice in the professional and popular press. Writing in Architect’s Newspaper, Julie Iovine described the GDNYU offerings as “marvelous” and an “all‐too-rare look at assorted contemporary efforts.” Anker, Harpman, and Joachim are the authors of Global Design (Prestel, 2014), a book that examines the possibilities for scaling design solutions in response to global warming.

About NYU Gallatin

Located in the heart of New York City’s Greenwich Village, the Gallatin School of Individualized Study is a small, interdisciplinary school within New York University. At Gallatin, students are given a well‐rounded liberal arts education and work closely with faculty advisers to design their own course of study. Gallatin students combine Gallatin’s core curriculum of small, interdisciplinary seminars with courses throughout NYU’s schools and colleges. Students enjoy the benefits of a small school—a strong sense of community and identity—and all the resources one finds at a major research university.

Happy Halloween!

To some, the spookiest part of Halloween may be the ghosts or vampires, but to us, it’s the plastic waste that is left behind. Nearly 2,000 tonnes of plastic waste are generated yearly from Halloween scraps, the equivalent of 83 million water bottles. Similar to electronic waste, the scraps that are left behind from Halloween will end up in a landfill - posing major hazards to the environment and humanity.
