atelier feichang jianzhu pavilion made out of CD cases

the shanghai corporate pavillion by atelier feichang jianzhu

the shanghai corporate pavillion, which will be part of the shanghai world expo in 2010 has a facade made from thousands of plastic tubes that were originally cd cases.

designed by atelier feichang jianzhu the impressive exterior structure is composed of hundreds of polycarbonate transparent recycled plastic tubes formed into a grid-like matrix. the polycarbonate tubes will be able to be recycled again at the end of the building’s life.

energy will be collected through a 1,600 sq meter solar thermal energy system of heat collecting tubes on the roof. this system will heat water up to 35ºC and will be used to generate electricity through ultra-low temperature power generation, which is similar to power generation from low-temperature geothermal reservoirs.
