The 8th Continent Floating Research Center has won a 2020 Grand Prix Award, highest French award for architecture. This technology wonder was created to help combat ocean pollution. It skims waste off the surface of the water and recycling plastics all while at sea.
The 8th Continent is designed with three unique glass forms with a spiral base. The 8th Continent is a masterpiece of beautiful architecture. It is functional while looking amazing.
“Today, large surfaces covered in marine plastic pollution equal the size of a continent. The one growing in the Pacific Ocean is called The 8th Continent. For too long, we lived in the delusion that we cannot hurt the ocean by our action onshore. We left hundreds of species to get extinct.”
