The Skyscraper is a powerful reminder of the 150,000,000 tons of plastic waste still swimming in our waters. Skyscraper is a physical example of why we need to change how we use and dispose of plastic in the world today.
An innovative architecture and design agency known as StudioKCA based in Brooklyn, New York was led by Jason Klimoski and Lesley Chang in achieving this magnificent gigantic sculpture.
They worked with volunteers from the Hawaii Wildlife Fund and the Surfrider Foundation, StudioKCA combed the beaches of Hawaii to gather up the waste.
According to StudioKCA, it seeks this way to draw attention to the universal problem of pollution that affects us all, and to make viewers aware that individual action is necessary.
