At first I thought Tito Ingenieri's recycled building endeavor was like all the others that have been featured on Trend Hunter. I was wrong, sorely so. A lifetime pursuit, it took nearly 19 years and six million beer bottles to create the finished product.

For this ginormous house, Tito Ingenieri collected bottles from streets and neighbors. Aside from the obvious reason for letting that jaw of yours drop, I've left the best feature for last: the bottles whistle whenever the southern winds blow, signaling that the river is rising. Tito Ingenieri thought of everything.
