To celebrate Hong Kong’s Lantern Wonderland 2013 festival, which wrapped up last month, Hong Kong-based firm Daydreamers Design constructed this massive Rising Moon dome, made entirely of recycled plastic bottles and LED lights. The 65-foot-diameter installation certainly isn’t the only formerly drinkable masterpiece outthere, but it’s definitely in running for the loveliest. The structure was meant to resemble the inside of a paper lantern, and was comprised of 4,800 five-gallon water bottles fitted with LED lights and arranged in triangular modules.
Inside the dome were 2,300 more bottles— this batch hanging from the ceiling like an eco-friendly chandelier.
These—combined with the moonlight that filters in—created a glowing effect designed reflect the moon across the pond on which the structure floats.
