New York City is home to millions of tons of trash. Luckily, it is also home to some of the most innovative and brilliant minds in the world.
Some of the people with those brilliant minds work at architecture firm Terreform, and they have come up with an idea for what to do with all that garbage. The Rapid Refuse Project suggests using robots to create buildings and islands from waste instead of just sending it to landfills. One of the first projects is a reverse Statue of Liberty.
I'm thinking they should call it the 'Statue of Litterty' and then immediately start working on Madison Square Compost Garden.
