Closed Loop Systems

The house that Joost Bakker built in Monbulk, Australia, about an hour outside Melbourne, is wrapped with a reinforced mesh frame holding over 11,000 terracotta pots planted with leafy strawberries, and surrounded by a flower garden bordering a brush of wild eucalyptuses. The interior, where the florist lives with his wife, Jennie, and their three young daughters, is made up entirely of recyclable materials — unpolished plywood floors, industrial-felt curtains, training-wire ceiling lamps. - The Trash Collector, NYTimes
