An Inflatable Shell Transforms the Inside of Dumpster into a Community Space

Part community space, part art installation and part urban intervention, "Inflato Dumpster" is
an inflatable membrane containing 2000 cubic feet of volume fitted inside a large dumpster. The project was created by New York based architect John Locke through his Department of Urban Betterment (DUB) with the goal of transforming something typically associated with waste and discarded materials into a space for something exciting and new. Speaking about the project John said, "As public space in New York becomes increasingly privatized and commodified, The Inflato Dumpster seeks to counter that tendency by serving as an open, engaging street-level structure that acts as a mobile learning laboratory."
