Ecological, resistant to earthquakes, bullet-proof and fireproof. Is it a tank?
Or an armored plane? Not at all. You can find these features in amazing houses that are being built in Nigeria. What’s surprising isn’t just the buildings’ properties but also the material used to build them. They are in fact … plastic bottles.
The initiator of this entire action is an association called Dare (association for the development of renewable energy sources), which together with London architects and engineers is paving the way for recycling materials that do not decompose, so they are by definition hostile to the environment. With this new application they are environmentally friendly, and also -they are building blocks that are safer than those that are traditionally used, because they are resistant to earthquakes, fires and bullets. But that’s not all.
