    Part of their work on this project reminds me of a project I did as a senior as an undergrad 12 yrs ago where I designed an entire interior curved wall made out of a lego like water bottles that were currently on the market in Europe. The project took the idea of a repurposed commercial product a bit farther and greener by using it as a passive solar collector to help heat the building during the colder months. Sun shades operated to allow light in to heat the water stored in the wall. Controlled ventilation would help circulate the air throughout the entire structure. Take a look if anyone is interested. Pics 10-12 highlight the wall.
