Waste Totem (Eco-Build)

ExCel, London

Ecobuild 2013 commissioned Duncan Baker-Brown (Senior Lecturer Faculty of Arts, University of Brighton & Director of BBM Sustainable Design) to design and build a 9m high Waste Totem for Ecobuild 2013 which drew visitorsʼ attention to the massive issues relating to waste & resource security that are facing us all today.

Nearly 50,000 visitors from 121 countries visited this year – Ecobuild is heralded as the largest sustainable construction trade show in the world. The Waste Totem was in the central axis between the two ExCel halls providing a huge attraction – signposting and raising these issues in all visitorsʼ minds and will feature 20 waste slogans that won a recent twitter competition to be included.
