We at HuffPost Green love finding a creative use for recycled materials, as we highlighted in our junk art and turning trash into crafts slideshows. Now we're moving on to bigger things, with a look at how recycled materials can be used as a foundation for houses, temples, and even student dorms. Take a look, and vote for your favorite recycled building!
