    Re:Source Albany

    Re:Source Albany is an urban development project that re-imagines America’s waste management strategy, using the city of Albany as a case study. The project proposes a plan to process trash near its source, digest all of Albany’s organic waste, and make the recycling process transparent. The design integrates landscape and architecture with urban infrastructure, promoting awareness of residents’ role in recycling and waste disposal. The development, which includes an inter-neighborhood path, a rooftop park, and a community garden, highlights the process of turning by-products into resources, creates jobs, generates energy, and dramatically reduces the city’s landfill garbage.
