BEER BOTTLES COMPETITION, Milano, Italy, 2008.
slide show gallery My proposal was to collect and recycle the bottles and broken glass, for use in street furniture, freeway sounds barriers and retaining walls. Broken remnants could be inserted into a resin base, to create decorative mosaic panels for uses such as freeway barriers. Intact bottles could be organised in rows and submerged in concrete for generating street furniture and retaining walls. Different coloured glass could be organised in such a way to create super-graphics and incorporating LED lights would enhance the effect at night. An advantage in using beer bottles is that they create regularly shaped building blocks, that have good acoustic and thermal properties when stacked into walls or barriers.
