We are living in the age of waste. Is design the answer to leaving our throwaway culture behind?

We all know waste is a big problem. So how are we going to fix it?

New design ideas are redefining the things we use every day. From fashion to food, electronics to construction, even packaging itself – transforming our trash into treasure could provide our path out of the Waste Age.

Explore major new exhibits that capture the devastating impact of waste including a large-scale art installation by Ibrahim Mahama made from e-waste in Ghana.

The exhibition showcases some of the visionary designers who are reinventing our relationship with waste including Formafantasma, Stella McCartney, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Fernando Laposse, Bethany Williams, Phoebe Englishand Natsai Audrey Chieza.
