Prof.dr.ir. Arjan van Timmeren, Professor of Environmental Technology & Design – Urbanism at the TU Delft and Scientific Director of the Amsterdam Institute for Metropolitan Solutions (AMS) and REPAiR project scientific coordinator, explains how increasing our understanding of the waste our cities produce we can develop new approaches increasing the use of material sources around us. One such example: using plastic waste to 3D print benches…can we really 3D print our cities? This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
