Recycled Island – a holiday fantasy

recycled island.jpgHere’s a crazy idea. Why not take the mass of garbage floating in the mid-Pacific and build a futuristic holiday destination there? Rotterdam-based architects WHIM have put out some artists’ impressions of what a resort built on a floating island of plastic junk and various debris might look like, and have got themselves news coverage as if it could really happen. Welcome to Recycled Island:

 

“The proposal has three main aims: Cleaning our oceans from a gigantic amount of plastic waste; Creating new land; And constructing a sustainable habitat. Recycled island seeks the possibilities to recycle the plastic waste on the spot and to recycle it into a floating entity.”
