opposite office's ocean museum and recycling plant draws attention to the plastic pollution issue

for some, the problem of plastic pollution in the ocean seems far away — but it is not, this issue is directly connected to our daily life, for example, through the fish we eat. opposite office’s ocean museum raises awareness of the change of mentality in sustainability, conservation, and elimination of ocean plastic by simultaneously being a plastic recycling plant.

‘ocean(a)way’ is a place of education where people can gain a better understanding of sea life, sea pollution, and climate change. this museum is built as a underwater circular pathway that is divided into five areas reflecting the five major oceans (pacific, atlantic, indian, antarctic and arctic) with numerous opportunities to learn about them.

opposite office’s museum is accompanied by a research center with workshop rooms and a real recycling plant. the plant sieves plastic waste from the ocean and produces recycled boats for the resort and souvenirs for the visitors. in combining form and function the venue in the atlantic is exclusively accessible by the recycled boats. the roof of the underwater museum sits at sea level and is an open pathway to the attached sea resort, with possibilities for swimming, sailing, and dining.
