A giant igloo house made from old recycled refrigerators!?

Check out this art installation/political statement/recycling demo (all in one) in Germany...

A public art installation made from 322 junked refrigerators!!!
 This is not within the realm of "Tiny Houses", but it very much so shows the usage of discarded materials that would otherwise be in a landfill- which I'm a big fan of!
      I've often thought that already-insulated refrigerator doors could be used to cover and frame some sort of dwelling or workshop- especially since their rectangular shape would make them so easy to attach and line-up/stack side by side. And yes, there is a design in my book (side columns of the blog) that utilizes large fridge doors as super-insulated entry doors....why not?
