    Square Heineken bottles - photos

    Square Heineken bottles. Beer bottles that double as bricks to build houses in impoverished countries. Unfortunately, the bottles never saw the market.

    I''d be happy with just some windows like this. Shame they didn't materialize, gathering materials would never be easier!

    As incalculable volume of waste bottles pollute the planet already...I know one example "The Bottle House" that used alternating cylindrical bottles side by side [neck-base-neck-base] perpendicular to the footing, can't recall how the open end was addressed. The Heineken's were designed with that neck fit in base cavity.
