Jason Van Nest, an architecture professor at the New York Institution of Technology (NYIT) contacted me recently about an exciting upcycling project, called The SodaBIB Project, that will help people create shelter using discarded materials. Professor Van Nest along with some of his students have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to fund this building project. The idea is to redesign shipping pallets to reuse as building materials to create a system that upcycles soda bottles as a roofing material.
All the information regarding this exciting project can be found at links below:
There is also a description and a video of the project at the Daily Dose of Architecture blog.
