03. Tube City: A Sustainable Water-Purifying City for Delhi

“Tube City is a design for a 21 km long tube running over the Yamuna River in the city of Delhi. Conceived by Abinhay Sharma, the tube itself would be a living sustainable city with in-house farms and residential, commercial and office zones. A central metro spine and road network would keep the tube well connected, and the structure could also draw in water from the river for purification and consumption.” (inhabitant)

03. Waste Landscape by Elise Morin and Clémence Eliard

“Waste Landscape” is a 600 square meters artificial undulating landscape covered by an armor of 60 000 unsold or collected CDs, which have been sorted and hand-sewn. It is well known that CDs are condemned to gradually disappear from our daily life, and to later participate in the construction of immense open-air, floating or buried toxic waste reception centers. Made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes: the monumental scale of the art work reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object.” (contemporist)
