The Oregon Bottle Bill
Background The Oregon Bottle Bill put an end to “No deposit - No return” in Oregon. This law, passed in 1971, requires that all beer and carbonated soft drink containers be returnable and have a minimum refund value.

After 30 years, it is still one of Oregon’s most effective recycling systems. How the Deposit System Works Every beer or carbonated soft drink container sold in Oregon must have a minimum refund value. Deposits begin with the distributor and are refunded to the customer when the empty...

The Sixties brought us drugs, protests, and paneling. The Seventies let these things endure, grow and become a classic. Today everyone is flying through grade school, junior high, and high school with some kind of over the counter drug of some sort. But building materials took a turn when people began to use gypsum instead of paneling to brighten up their homes and offices. Paneling was great if one was trying to create some kind of log cabin in the suburbs. The outside of their home looked like every other house on the block but the inside looked as if the woods were in the room. Gypsum ended all of that.

The term architecture takes into consideration a number of things. These are space, mass, volume, light, texture, shadow, program and materials. The building that is the end product is a creative manipulation of all these elements. The term also includes the pragmatic elements like construction, technology and cost. And thus, the architect achieves something, which is functional, aesthetic, socially conscious and most of the times artistic too.
