Shanghai corporate pavilion thumb 450x329 Used CD cases recycled to erect Solar Shanghai Pavilion

Atelier Feichang Jianzhu is the brain behind the Shanghai CorporatePavilion but what was more impressing were the thousands of plastictubes that were made entirely from CD cases. These polycarbonate tubescan be recycled again at the end of the buildings life. How manybuildings do we know about where the raw materials used can be usedagain! Energy is collected through a 1600 meter solar thermal energysystem of heat collecting tubes on the roof. It heats up the water to95 F and will be used to generate electricity which will be used forthe exposition as well as the building’s daily power needs.

For giving the appearance of a dream, a misting system isbeing used which can be sprayed in various patterns under the entranceceiling which will give the building a fresh look and an elegantappearance. That is not all what the mist does. The mist will alsolower the temperature, purify the air and create a comfortable climatein the pavilion.
