Up-cycling the city |
In the most simple terms up-cycling means giving old products morevalue rather than less. It is the opposite of down-cycling, and together up-cycling and down-cycling form the two sides of re-cycling. Traditionally the term is used for consumer goods or reusable commodities. NBTWN wants to investigate what it would mean to use the idea of up-cycling in the context of the city. Up-cycling the city is the theme of a new series of NBTWN sessions.
