  • Intersection



    I found the “Nutri-Terra Indoor Composter” by Julia Sorzano in the 2004 ID Student Design Review. The intersection that jumped out at me was that the machine powers itself through the heat that the decomposition process generates. The system is completely self-contained, so that the user can dump compostable materials in the top, and access soil from a separate drawer down at the bottom without any compost smell wafting through the house. Personally, if I were to make any improvements to the design, they would only be small aesthetic changes (I don’t think the futuristic look really suits the function). Overall, I think that the function suits the need and addresses the bigger problem of waste management and energy reduction.
