This technology isn't new and as far as I know in developing countries car tires are recycled in 100% by doing shoe soles etc.. Shipping would be too expensive! But show us the form, might be interesting!
not sure about car tires, but it sounds promising, would love to see more update. cheers!
Well, szymonwit has a point... please give us more detail about your idea so we see what's unique about your approach!
you may get sued by the international olympics. besides, where design is concerned, jovoto is more like the special olympics.
imo, a house made of car tires would be very unhygienic since they are considered toxic?? after all think of all the waste they have been in contact to when on the trucks, and after they are all worn out you plan to put people to sleep, live and raise children between walls of stinking toxic waste? :S i think you should go to a completlely different direction as far as the material is conserned.
in india, they use natural rubber to make stuff, because it is one of their main available export resources. these aren't toxic in any way, although they make for lousy tyres.
even used tires would be to expensive
Yep, make use of local available materials.
I think you could do the same thing with reusable forms though... and just recycle the tires.
this is confusing....how does it work?
i expected a reply....!!!! :) :)
By the image i thought your idea was about reusing the useless post olimpic games structures!
Please show more of your idea...and try not to use the tires as an exposed material....the formaldeyhde contained in car tires is harmful for the skin.
What kind of idea is this!
ok got it, nice approach! i rated u 6!
but where is the design
Thats the completly Idea? "This house is made out of mud and car tires."
No design? No picture? And still not the last .... :-)
The Olympic spirit is one.
This must be a joke. Please work a litte bit more. don´t be lazy
