Architecture for Humanity would like to congratulate David de Rothschild, Adventure Ecology, and the entire Plastiki team for a successful expedition and campaign championing the protection of the world's oceans from the degredation of disposable plastics.

The Plastiki story highlights the importance of innovation to climb from this age of plastic waste towards Cradle to Cradle solutions. The Plastiki cabin was designed by Architecture For Humanity architects Nathaniel Corum and Michael Jones who shaped the boat's srPET exterior into an efficient and iconic shell. The cabin's triangulated tortoise-like structure is inherently strong and collected valuable drinking water for the crew during the 4 month journey.

Architecture For Humanity is proud to be part of the Plastiki team.
