Markus Jeschaunig’s Arc de Triomphe Highlights Consumer Waste with Two Tons of Stale Bread

Comments Off on Markus Jeschaunig’s Arc de Triomphe Highlights Consumer Waste with Two Tons of Stale Bread

Did you know that 70,000 tons of edible bread goes to waste every year in Austria? According to designer and sustainability advocate Markus Jeschaunig , the amount of food that Europeans waste every year would be more than enough to feed the world’s hungry. To bring awareness to the wastefulness in current consumer behavior, Jeschaunig recreated a model of the Arc de Triomphe from two tons of stale waste bread. Designed for Austria’s 2012 Lendwirbel Festival in Graz, the metal and wood arc highlights how society has prioritized capitalism and affluence at the expense of the environment and the hungry. At the close of the festival, the old bread was transported to a biogas plant and transformed into electricity. + Markus Jeschaunig The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Solar Decathlon 2013 Is Underway

The biennial competition to build attractive, appealing, solar-powered homes is now underway, with the 2013 Solar Decathlon’s opening ceremonies being held today. Unlike previous years, when the event has been held on the National Mall in Washington DC, this year the Decathlon is being held in Irvine CA. Nineteen teams from across the US and Canada, as well as teams from Austria and the Czech Republic are taking part in this year’s event. The Solar Decathlon is made up of 10 different events judging a range of features of these designs, including their energy performance, the livability of each house, and the overall construction budget. This year’s entrants are targeting an estimated real-world construction cost of not more than $250,000. In addition to the competition itself, there is an exposition called XPO being held adjacent to the Decathlon. This program contains a number of clean, renewable, and energy efficient products and demonstrations. According to the Department of Energy, “The winner of the overall competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. ” The competition and exhibition of these projects continues through Sunday, October 13, 2013. The overall winner of this year’s Decathlon is scheduled to be announced on Saturday, October 12. image credit: Richard King/U.S. Department of Energy
