About Competition

The aim of the “Trashed | Smart Trashcan Design Challenge “challenge is to understand how design can be a tool to incentivize the act of using trash bins. The design of trash bins can experiment with unconventional forms.

A great way of luring people into doing something is to incentivize the act. There are ways to do this, but budget constraints might be a hindrance, and we end up with sub-optimal trash bins.

Design a public trash can/bin of dimension 2m x 2m for the 21st century, while encouraging people to use it, through its design.

The aim of the challenge is to understand how design can be a tool to incentivize the act of using trash bins. The design of trash bins can experiment with unconventional forms. The design must be able to capture the attention of people, passing by it. The aesthetic must be balanced with the functional purpose of bins.

Trash bins are public facilities that are made to be accessible to all types of users, without hassle. Systems can be incorporated to ease use and add sophistication to the process of disposal. These bins are designed to promote conscious and efficient disposal of trash, so its material or technique used, must not harm the environment.

Unfuse serves as a unit for Uni in the field of Architecture. It intends to break the fusion of traditional design barriers and methodologies by making it a platform for experimentation and conceptual exchange of ideas in architecture, urbanism, society, culture, and ecology. It is a research initiative dedicated to providing opportunities for designers from all domains to explore ideas that go beyond the boundaries of architectural discipline and enrich our built environment; thereby opening up possibilities for the promotion of architectural thought at a global level.
