To give new life to this receding technology, architects Arielle Blonder, Guy Austern and Mushit Fidelman designed this stunning pavilion made of CDs. They used a program called CDesign, which interprets CDs as a 2D building block for the next generation of 3D structures. The pair have submitted their proposal for the “TEX-FAB-REPEAT” Digital Fabrication Competition this past November.

    But what is this re-purposing good for? Will this pavilion actually be used or just sit in a gallery? Either way, it is a very creative use of the material and an elegant design. Nice job.

    But don’t sell this project – and yourself – short, Mush; these CDs aren’t recycled, they’re repurposed. Which is even better, because their embodied energy wasn’t increased to change their form.
