About the project Edit

Initiated by Bruno Tusingwire, Recycled Amusement is a park for children in the slums of Kamapala built entirely with recycled plastic bottles.

The design gives the children a physiological and emotional lift through recreation, and the inventive use of materials such as plastic bottles gives children and communities as a whole a new way to think about the environment that surrounds them.
