RECYCLED WINDOWS GLASS HOUSE

Modern house from recycled windows, Christiania

Glass house made from recycled glass windows in Freetown Christiania, neighborhood/commune in Copenhagen, Denmark created during the hippie movement. Christiania has its own flag and its own set of rules independent from the Danish government. Within Christiania itself no cars are allowed, stealing is forbidden as well as violence, guns, knives, bulletproof vests, hard drugs and bikers’ colors.

The CarbonTwin project was created to promote free exchange of Carbon Offsets between members who simply share their carbon offsets (for no compensation!) with members with higher carbon footprints. http://www.carbontwin.com/

I used to hang out here quite a bit, and unfortunately, violence and the threat of violence seemed to be ever present in Christiania. An interesting experiment, but one that tax payers in Copenhagen had to pay dearly for over the years.

I like the Christiania recycled windows glass houses but I have never been there myself. Sounds like an interesting place. I read that a lot of violence there is linked to the open cannabis trade.

One of the many idiosyncrasies within Copenhagen’s controversial commune of Freetown Christiania, the “Glass House” has been described as a construction exemplifying modern “architecture without architects”. bulk sms sending software vinduer

The 85 acres of Denmark’s capital known as Christiania grew out of a former military barracks that was abandoned in 1971. forex technicals altima HID bulbs

A successful social experiment or lawless drug den, depending on who you speak to, Freetown Christiania was born of a spirit of collectivism and anarchy which rejects private ownership. skin parisites mountain bikes melbourne
