Project Summary

Temporary urban extension in a former landfill

With more waste than ever heading toward the incinerator, opportunities arise for former landfills to be put to new use. The Temporary urban extension in a former landfill harnessed the unlimited potential of its disused site.

Its aim is to show how an area once recognized by its mounds of garbage can be re-naturalized into a living city quarter.
