The Cooper-Hewitt is displaying a building made out of soda-bottle plastic. They don't call it "soda bottle plastic", though. They call it "SmartWrap." The article is a little confusing, but it sounds like eventually the plastic could be imprinted with electronics, creating illumination and shading wherever the owner desired -- i.e., windows, electronic displays, and so on. The building was designed by KieranTimberlake Associated LLP, which I guess is the firm that Kieran Culkin and Justin Timberlake started after they graduated from architecture school. Thanks, guys!

Here's the official site Kieran and Justin put together for the plastic house project, and here's a song I wrote for Justin about the project, back when it was just getting started.
