Event 19

Exhibition opening: Too Good to Waste

– Venue: Plaza Mayor

Too Good to Waste seeks to question the validity of the current relationship between wood consumption and fashion. Contrary to popular perception, not all forests are disappearing. In fact, the vast American hardwood forest is a quickly expanding resource and the volume of its standing timber has more than doubled in the last 50 years.

A guided tour of the American Hardwood Export Council’s Too Good to Waste project, an interactive installation designed by Barcelona-based architect Benedetta Tagliabue, and crafted by furniture makers Benchmark.
