Artist Tito Ingenieri, who lives near Buenos Aires, [as made] his residential compound (including a three-story lighthouse and workshop) from six million bottles—everything from beer receptacles to wine vessels to perfume containers.
"The truth is, I owe so much to the public because thanks to them, who drank so much alcohol and threw everything out, I was able to make a house," says Ingenieri, whose spent the last 20 years building the walls—some as high as 30 feet—of his recycled home "It’s paradise for me. It’s like living in another dimension."
