When do we no longer need something, and how do we make that decision? For its fifth edition, Brasilia magazine set out on a quest to define what is superfluous; to explore how much is too much.


Over the course of 150 pages, Brasilia’s interviews, comics and photographic works attempt to cover as many aspects of the wide-ranging topic of waste as possible, with each article also having its own individual look, tailored to support the message of its written narrative.


Brasilia won Student Magazine of the Year at the 2018 Stack Awards
