Trash Skips Filled With Found Materials Become Fun Meeting Spots in The Netherlands
The skips are deposited in central locations and then filled up with wood, wire, and other recycled materials either found in the local environment or donated by community members. Then, within a week, these materials are transformed into sweet little buildings, with the heavy skips forming their foundation, that are equipped with a built-in bar.
Once complete, the community is invited to meet at the recycled receptacles turned into hyper-local coffee shops or street bars. This year, the Straatlokaal project in the Netherlands featured three such funky structures that in turn comprised the central hub of a small festival in the the heart of Utrecht.
