The EcoARK is a three-story amphitheater pavilion made up entirely of plastic bottles from Taiwan’s waste stream. The installation features a museum space, air conditioning which uses falling water collected during rainstorms, and a design to maximize incoming natural lighting through the clear bottles. The builders, Far Eastern Group, indicate the structure as the world’s first recycled structure of such magnitude.
