Interdisciplinary Design

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 throughout the summer in Vancouver’s False Creek with up to 12 guests on board. C Restaurant hosted dinners throughout the summer providing a rotating menu of beautifully prepare and sustainably harvested seafood. We are grateful to Shannon Ronalds of the School of Fish Foundation for the opportunity to have been part of this exciting and important project.
