Sustainable Form-Inclusion System

A mock-up of the SFIS with bundled plastic bottles. Most plastic water bottles are discarded with the caps on; capped, empty bottles are airtight and can be placed within a concrete structure to create a void. Hydrostatic pressure from wet concrete will only nominally reduce the air volume inside the bottles.

The system can utilize different types of refuse in various assemblies. Shown here, discarded plastic bottles are compressed into blocks.
