Dan Phillips's Budweiser House!

Dan phillips appears to be a very interesting character having a very multifaceted and colorful life which he has spent as an intelligence officer in the Army, a college dance instructor, an antiques dealer and a syndicated cryptogram puzzle maker. Since about a decade ago he has started to design houses from trash!

Take a listen to this very interesting TED talk, where he talks on a number of issues including how standardization has effected the construction industry (even though I don't agree with him), and monotonous character of housing complexes. And also most interestingly, the Budweiser house! very very cool indeed!
