Britzman and University of Nebraska [1] students put a total of 200 hours into this project, which received financial support from Fulbright Canada [2] and the University College of Architecture. The bottles together form a bright, undulating parking canopy that is not only practical but also very attractive.

When the project was complete, 11 students helped to move the canopy into place at 5.45am! This is such a fantastic project – simple but also eye-opening – which will help local Nebraskans to rethink their consumer behavior [3] both on campus and beyond.
