We are excited to contribute to Design TO for the first time: Luisa Rubisch and Rasa Weber of the Berlin-based design and architecture collective “They Feed Off Buildings” (TFOB) speak about the process of creating Urban Terrazzo. Join us for the talk!

The project Urban Terrazzo, which travels through various cities in order to explore the given materials of architectural demolition, illustrates one of TFOB’s experiments in performative design. Whenever an old building has to be demolished or its core removed, an enormous amount of demolition waste is produced. What seems like a pile of rubble, which usually ends up in local landfills, can actually be the material of a great new story. Following the talk, Maryam Siddiqi, Lifestyle Editor of The Globe and Mail, will interview Rubisch and Weber

DesignTO Talks: “They Feed Off Buildings” is organized by DesignTO, and co-presented with the Goethe-Institut & the Consulate General of Germany in Toronto and Harbourfront Centre.
