Plastic Bottle Canopy 膠樽頂篷
A beautiful parking canopy might seem like a odd contradiction, but this was exactly what designer Garth Britzman has installed in 2012. What’s even more amazing was that this canopy was made with 1,581 recycled soda bottles. He made use of the flower like shape at the base of the bottle by partially filling them with coloured liquid.
