This article, from the BBC, is about this year’s TED prize, which has been split between ten projects that are improving city life.

Some of them look interesting, but that’s not the point.

One of the winners, Ruganzu Bruno, will be using his share of the money to build a play centre in the slums of Uganda.  It will be made entirely from plastic bottles.

A play centre made from plastic bottles?  That is a proper innovative use of rubbish.  I wonder if we might have towns in the future which are made from recycled waste?  Could be some interesting architecture coming our way.
