Tito Ingenieri: Empty Bottles, Full Life

Having invested so much life into Rosslyn, I often find myself wondering about other epic house projects, house design and rehab adventures that eclipse the normal homeowner/home balance.

Let me introduce Tito Ingenieri. This creative Argentinian built a beer bottle house out of six million empty glass beer bottles. He will gladly teach anyone how to build this kind of ecological house that simultaneously salvages and recycles materials while keeping the streets clean. In his town of Quilmes, Argentina, neighbors gladly give him their empty bottles and admire his artistic creation.
