The Far Eastern Group, commissioned by the Taipei city government to build the EcoARK — a boat-shaped exhibition hall made out of PET bottles — said it will work with the Ministry of Education to distribute the bottles to 100 elementary schools for “green use.”
Schools that were damaged by Typhoon Morakot in 2009 will be granted priority in the project, said group chairman Douglas Hsu.
He said all the honeycomb-shaped PET bricks used to build the EcoARK will be reused in creative projects so that local communities can join in environmentally friendly action.
For instance, he said, the bricks can be reassembled into bus stops, greenhouses, galleries or even sheds for keeping livestock.
