Bounded between hills of trash and stone, live a threatened community that serve the city of Cairo. The Zabaleen: The Garbage People. Seeking a continuity for the Zabaleen, the processes currently being applied to the sorting and recylcing of trash will be shifted to the digital realm. A building composed of agglomerated geometries will be constructed over 250 years, informed by the genealogies of the inhabitants of Cairo and encoded in stone, until it has reached its maximum capacity.
