Maputo Tile Mural
I’ve been working with a group based in Maputo, Mozambique. They have the PP injection machine and I have made them moulds to produce tiles. The city council have approved a tile wall in one of the main avenues and it is going to be an environmental awareness mural of 3000 plastic tiles covering an area of over 20 square metres. Each tile is 10cm x 10cm and they have recycled over 100,000 bottle caps, nearly 2000 PET bottles, and also polystyrene take-away containers to make the 3000 tiles. The wall is currently being prepared to attach the tiles and the unveiling is planned for later this month. I will post an update when it is complete.
The tiles are based on the ‘Metro’ design with bevelled edges, but are square rather than rectangular.
