This project used recycled soda bottles as a canopy under which a small park is created. An intriguing environment is created where one can explore the surface qualities of the bottles at eye level. Additionally, this project sought to stimulate creative alternatives for recycling and reusing materials. (POP)culture used over 1500 recycled plastic soda bottles. (POP)culture was designed and fabricated by students from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. (POP)culture was originally designed as an installation for Lincoln PARK(ing) Day in Lincoln, Nebraska. PARK(ing) DAY was under the direction of Peter Olshavsky, Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and made possible by support from the Fulbright Canada-RBC Eco-Leadership Program.
