Eco-friendly building built using 1.5 million plastic bottles
A massive building made using more than 1.5 million PET bottles has recently been unveiled in Taiwan. This building named, ‘EcoARK’, is built by the Far Eastern Group at a price of US$3 million on the principles of ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’. This three-storey structure is supposed to be the lightest building in the world, yet it is strong enough to withstand typhoons and earthquakes. The building will also feature an amphitheatre and an exhibition hall. It will use a screen of falling water collected during the rainy season for air conditioning purposes.
The EcoARK is an excellent example of the fact that recycling does not compromise aesthetic beauty.
