Plastic Concepts is a project by the Colombian architect Oscar Andrés Méndez.
The plastic is melted and injected into a mold to produce plastic blocks that assemble like Lego pieces, a simple assembly system that facilitates the construction of houses.
Additives are added to make them fire resistant. In addition, the plastic structure makes it resistant to earthquakes.
Their mission is to provide the materials and give the necessary training to build their houses using their system. A house for a family can be built by four people, without experience, in just five days.
This system, on the one hand, reduces the plastic that reaches landfills, which reduces the consumption of water and energy, as well as the reduction of CO2 emissions through the use of these recycled materials.
