Pop Bottle Barge
Designed and built in 12 days for the School of Fish Foundation summer fundraiser to heighten awareness around sustainable seafood harvesting practices, this dining pavilion floats on over 1700 recycled pop bottles positioned below the floor. Made entirely from donated materials, we worked with Matt Kirk-Buss of Loki Ocean Enterprises to engineer the structure to float safely with up to 12 guests on board. We built the pavilion on “the hard” at Granville Island Marina and then had it towed across False Creek and then craned into position (over cars and sailboats) near ‘C’ restaurant on the opposite side of the harbour. Dinners were prepared by some of Vancouver’s top seafood chefs throughout the summer with a rotating menu of beautifully presented and sustainably harvested seafood.
