Explorer in the Field: Architect Arthur Huang may not be your "typical" explorer—instead of drawing inspiration from tropical forests or endangered species, his motivation comes from the urban jungle of Taipei, Taiwan. Arthur set out to make something new out of trash the city no longer wanted. Along with his team, he created the EcoArk: a building made entirely from discarded water bottles. Now, Arthur's visionary approach to using old materials in new ways may just help save forests and endangered species around the world.
