Wandering in the backwoods Bourges-net I came across an interesting article – Man-made floating island treasures. So a garden party Spiral Island may be the most bizarre and successful hand-paradise, whose world has ever seen. For those, who are not familiar: the first iteration of this portable island was built fifteen years ago, but was destroyed by a hurricane. The current model also floats on top of millions of recycled plastic bottles (installed portable motor boat), like its predecessor. Crew is the faithful followers of the fans and friends have created micro society with its rules and obligations.
The whole island is growing – and the people and structures that inhabit it are still evolving.
Perhaps more surprising than the fact of free-floating luxury private island, is the fact that it continues to evolve over time, it is constantly under development and refinement. For many years it was built a little house with a bedroom for two people, then there were swings under the sun, and even a massage table, beach and more.
As can be seen in the photo, the base of the island consists of baskets with plastic bottles. Apart from them, Worn tires, so the whole island is floating like a huge boat, which is constantly growing with the addition and updating of the bags with bottles. Likewise the creators are working on increasing food production on the island: there is a garden grapes on the beach, tulips, just grow edible cactus fruit. A set of building materials found on the island, a gift, or from another recycled trash.
It is worth noting the aesthetic design of the space between the house and the beach. Camping, benches, palm trees and sandy paths everywhere. On the island a tropical feel cozy. Incidentally, Island is happy to welcome visitors, as well as donations to help keep it afloat.
Life on the virtual paradise comes without a problem. On the one hand, repeated natural disasters can continue to threaten its existence. In addition, fresh water, security and other issues have always been considered – in the end in the first place.
