CD Pavilion.

This is the Shanghai Corporate Pavilion being built for the Shanghai World Expo held next year designed by Atelier Feichang Jianzhu.

Its exterior is made from recycled CD cases (no doubt those counterfeits we usually see pictures of bulldozers going over, plus all the BPA filled polycarbonate bottles they can't sell).

Polycarbonates are thermoplastics that can be heated and reformed, and the architects suggest that when the show is over the whole thing can be melted down again.

The Pavilion also features a 1600m2 solar heat-collecting tube on the roof to provide electricity and water heating.
