Off The Beaten Path: Tito Ingenieri’s Bottle House

Six million bottles are the building blocks of sculptor Tito Ingenieri’s home.  The project, which began 21 years ago after a few other impressive feats, such as walking to Peru, and building a theatre out of junk (to name a few), was born from economic need, the desire to have a unique home and the search to transform garbage into something useful. The unique house, set in Quilmes, is also surrounded by Tito’s sculptures and has become a neighborhood emblem. Although it is not officially open to the public, it is the artists desire that the house, on Av. 25 de Mayo and Los Naranjos, be turned into a museum and that the philosophy of building with recycled material expand.
