YEAR 2010

Students of architecture at Detmold’s University of Applied Sciences designed and built this temporary summer pavilion from more than 2000 recycled beer boxes. The design, developed using parametric software, places the boxes in a free-flowing form with minimal surface area. Static load testing was carried out to establish the optimum construction method with this unusual material. The fabrication process was completed within one week, providing a fitting venue for the end of semester party.
