世界上首个由塑料瓶建造的村庄


你听说过塑料瓶家园吗?在巴拿马博卡斯德尔托罗的Isla Colón小镇上,整个村子的住房都是用塑料瓶建成的!这也是世界上首个完全由塑料瓶组成的村庄。当地人把塑料瓶回收再利用,最后竟建造了120套房子。发起人Robert Bezeau的初衷是为保护小岛怡人的自然环境,将塑料瓶之类的有毒废料从垃圾中分离出来。没想到,破坏环境的塑料瓶却有大用处。


每家每户都备有一个铁笼,把回收的塑料瓶子全部装在里面,再倒入轻质混凝土。铁和混凝土并不是最环保的材料,但用10000个废旧塑料瓶做成的两居室却无疑是最环保的。最惊人的莫过于这种简易房子的室温竟比室外低了17度!经过同当地建筑师的协商,“塑料瓶之家”团队设计了三种不同的房子类型,每一种都具有很强的抗震性。值得一提的是,住户完全可以DIY自己的“塑料瓶之家”。别看它外表简陋,但“五脏俱全”,水电设施完善,门窗设计完全符合建筑标准。


根据Bezeau和他团队的说法。“这些再利用的材料,可以让塑料瓶之家在很短的时间内建造,并且比起传统建材,在重建过程中可以节省非常大的开支。”


建造这个村子总共需要3个阶段,它所在的是一片未经开化的土地,有山丘、有山谷、有清澈的小溪,还有一堆不同种类的野菜,一旦竣工,会住进120户以上的家庭,以及一个带有公共花园的小型精品旅馆,此外,村子的组成部分也包括一个绿化带,迷你公园,可以练瑜伽及其他户外运动。


在这一过程中,Bezeau收集了上万个塑料瓶,把这些东西做成房子的主义,是他梦中的画面,自从有了这一构想后,他还开办了教育机构,来教其他人去应用这种独特的建筑技艺。


“这种房屋建造风格采用了一种绿色的方法,而且房屋所有者会以一种生态环保的方式生活。”Bezeau说:“我们生活在那些我们消费并丢弃的东西中,并用这些材料重建现代,有风格,并且高质量的住宅。”

World’s first Plastic Bottle Village to recycle over a million PET bottles


The first of an entire village of plastic bottle homes is being constructed on Isla Colón in Bocas Del Toro, Panama. By recycling plastic bottles for use as insulation in what will eventually be 120 houses, Plastic Bottle Village founder Robert Bezeau is helping to preserve the island's luscious surroundings and diverting toxic materials from the landfill. But plastic offers other surprising benefits as well.


Each home will comprise a steel cage full of recycled plastic bottles that are then covered in a concrete mix. While steel and concrete are not necessarily the most beneficial materials, the first two-bedroom home recycled a staggering 10,000 plastic bottles, offering significant environmental benefits – including interior temperatures that are 17 degrees Celsius cooler than outside. Consulting with local architects, the group designed three different models that have sufficient flex to be earthquake-resistant, though custom designs are also welcome. Each home will be delivered complete with plumbing and electricity, along with standard doors and windows.


According to Bezeau and his team, “The re-use of its core materials allows the Plastic Bottle Village to build homes in a fraction of the time and at a huge savings in the cost of re-construction, compared to the traditional materials used locally.”
The Village will be built in three phases on 83 acres of pristine land with hilltops, valleys and fresh water streams – in addition to a variety of wildlife and indigenous vegetation. When complete, it will comprise 120 homes and lots, as well as a small boutique lodge with a community garden. It will also include green zones and mini parks ideal for yoga and other outdoor activities.


When Bezeau first moved to Panama, he established a plastic recycling service to address the enormous challenges Boca Del Toro faces with unmanaged waste. In the process, he collected thousands of plastic bottles. The idea to use them as insulation for housing came to him in a dream. Since developing the Plastic Bottle Village concept, he has also committed to creating an educational facility through which he can teach others to implement his unique building technique.


“This style of home building takes a green approach and the owners of the properties will share a conscious, earth friendly shift in their way of living,” according to Bezeau. “We will be living inside what we have consumed and thrown away, and will re-construct those materials into modern, stylish, and quality built residencies.”
