Gallery: Giant Glowing Sculpture Made From Crushed PET Bottles Rises at...

Then a polietilene tube was filled from the blue-shaded containers, made into a bridge shape, and the air was again, sucked!

Garcia and Siuda created Devebere after winning the Gau:di student competition for sustainable architecture. The temporary sculpture provided a free space for recreation and relaxation—and created some cool shadows—during the city’s Biennale.

The sculpture was made by first cleaning the outside of the bottles, then taking the label and top off, and sucking the air out of them, which makes them much stronger. A polietilene tube was filled with containers, before being vacuum-packed into bridge formations. Created with the help of many volunteers, Devebere offered creative interaction during the day and it also glowed during the night.
