About The Plant
The site-specific performances and installations will unfold the wealth of architectural beauty within the revitalized space of The Plant. Located in Back of the Yards/New City, The Plant demonstrates techniques for reimagining waste as a resource, achieving economies of scale and incubating small businesses. The goal of The Plant is to create replicable models for efficiencies that close loops of waste and energy and to encourage others to implement these techniques to combat climate change.
