‘plastic dining room’ by vancouver-based office goodweather collective and loki ocean is a fully catered floating barge made out of recycled pop-bottles onn vancouver’s false creek. constructed from nearly 1700 containers, the temporary pavilion is a fundraising project for the school of fish foundation, a local organization that aims to train and educate chefs around the world about ocean-friendly seafood.

the 20 by 8 feet raft can accommodate up to 12 guests every evening. a large communal table rests on a glass platform that shows the recycled bottles sandwiched between the wooden flooring.

from now until the end of september, the award-winning ‘c restaurant’ will cook a six course meal paired with six different kinds of wine for 215 dollars per seat.

  • That is amazing! I am surprised that it does not have the tendency to flip, although it doesn’t seem as though this is a problem 🙂 The shots of the bottles put waste in perspective. We produce so much, and yes even when garbage is to one, garbage, it still has value to another. More projects like this please 😀 Ps. throw a couple solar panels on the roof, and cut it loose from shore, that would make a fun evening.
