Plastiki Plastic Bottle Boat Unveiled in San Francisco!
Architecture for Humanity took on the project of designing the ‘off-grid habitation’, or cabin of the 60-foot catamaran to house a crew of six. David de Rothschild is currently joined by skipper Jo Royle and co-skipper David Thomson, along with Josian and Olav Heyerdahl – the grandchildren of famed explorer and archeologist Thor Heyerdahl, whose 1947 expedition across the Pacific on a raft called the Kon-Tiki inspired the Plastiki’s name. The 7,500 mile route from San Francisco to Sydney is expected to take several months, while the crew will rotate at planned intervals. “The thing is not to make plastic the enemy, but to reassess how we use, dispose, and reuse it,’ says David de Rothschild.
