Houses made of recycled material: Be creative!

I just watched this presentation by Dan Phillips at TED. He made beautiful houses mostly (70 to 85%) out of recycled material. He explains how we must change our way of thinking when it comes to build a house and how it's important to valorize discarded materials:

And here's another video, if you want to visit some of the houses he built:



I learn in this video that these houses are built part of an affordable houses program for the poor! Wow, great work, Mr. Dan Phillips! :-)
