Bottle Village

We have been talking so much about architecture in all the grades, I want to make sure I expose the students to all possible styles of architecture, not just what is familiar or popular. So we "visited" Grandma Prisbrey and her Bottle Village. I love to show the students artist who are untrained yet moved to create ( think Simon Rodia and the Watts Towers). The kids were transfixed by her creations. Many wanted to live in them and some want to create their own Bottle Village. Grandma Prisbrey was recycling before the term recycling was even used!
