Rising Moon: an upcycling lesson from Hong Kong

The “Rising Moon” dome is a temporary pavilion set in Hong Kong. This steel dome-shaped is framed with plastic water bottles, lit up with internal LED fixings. Amazingly, this structure is entirely covered in plastic water bottles, the kind of containers used in offices all over the world. Almost 7000 PET water coolers were used for the Rising Moon dome, which hardly represent 15 minutes’ worth of bottled water consumption in Hong Kong! (via Materia, photos John Pilas).

    Je connaissais l’upcycling dans le mobilier ou la décoration, pas encore en architecture. Et le résultat est convaincant ! En espérant que le message passe…

    Merci Johann pour votre message. En effet, le résultat fait moins “boîte à oeufs” qu’on aurait pu l’imaginer ! Il faut savoir oser, en grand.
