Abdou DiaSenegal (FR)
My name is Abdou Nar Dia and I initiated the concept of
. The idea is to fill empty plastic bottles with small rubbish such as plastic bags, fabric scraps, cigarette ends, small packages and to use them as bricks in the construction of walls and houses. With these eco-bricks, I design and make different kinds of public or private arrangements (schools, houses, markets, alleys etc.). I grew up in a suburb of Dakar and I use upcycled waste to improve the living conditions in my neighbourhood: I build sports fields, benches, walls, etc. My leitmotiv is: pick it up, use it , recycle it!
