Tiles Refugee Camps

This concept is about plastic waste and refugee camps. We made a system where the people in the camps can get their own job. They need to collect plastic to clean the camps and to reuse it. With simple machines they can produce plastic tiles, to build floors and roofs with. The tile is multifunctional, cables can be placed underneath it. There is a relief for grip on top, which also serves for water draining on the roofs. The shape in the middle is a keyhole, so a tool can take one tile out without having to take the whole floor out.
