A Rubbish Tower

A Rubbish Tower is a hyper-tall recycling facility that acts as a beacon for the city, existing for our waste, and digesting it for the city to see. Next in London’s vertical history: a green smoke stack, uninhabited tower, machine landscape, tower for none, a new architectural sublime.

Fraser Morrison created A Rubbish Tower, he joined the Architect-US Job+J1 Visa Program family and has been working towards getting the opportunity to work in the USAThe project explores what it means to build vertical and how we can create new forms of environmentally positive architecture that benefit people and society. The thesis was explored using a variety of medium to understand what the architecture could be.

Since completion the Rubbish Tower has been exhibited at The Royal Institute of British Architects, and at Disapora – an exhibition in which it was included alongside renowned architects such as Farshid Moussavi, Sam Jacob, and Kate Macintosh. The work has been further disseminated through publications in journals and Citizen Magazine, a new type of architecture publication for the 21st century.
