States of Disassembly observes the possibility of a series of building and landscape types that recognize an emergent e-waste commons—leveraging trends in reuse, repair, education, and entertainment. The proposed types are situated in city centers, on the peri-urban edge, and in urban hinterlands. The seven types test new programmatic pairings and new forms of commons that might be fostered if we design for the e-waste stream. These e-waste commons, under-pinned by a desire to make our collective footprint on the globe more legible and tangible might incite new actions.
