From Trash, to House

The workshop 'From Trash, to House' took place at the Agora Project

in the old town of Nicosia in collaboration with Tesura Cyprus

We invited people to come and join us for a 5-day workshop and learn how to build shelters with the bottle-weaving technique. The workshop stood as an opportunity to emphasize the fact that homelessness in Cyprus is increasing and we must act on it before it is too late. 

We completed a small shelter and re-used 926 plastic bottles!

The roof was constructed a bit differently. We weaved the bottles vertically following a horizontal grid. The result is a 'floating roof' made out of plastic bottles!
