Gallery: Solar-Powered Recycled Pavilions Unveiled for the 2012 London ...

 
Third place was won by a US team from Dowling Duncan whose pavilion is an oragami version of a track. Made from ground up recycled running shoes, the track provides an interactive place to play and gather.

The winning entry was designed by Jose Carlos Cruz, Ines Guedes, Miguel Santos, and Antonio Cruz to look like the Olympic rings. The rings are extruded into rooms where visitors can find out information, relax, shop, or get a drink. The Olympic colors are used to in the rings on top of the buildings. The series of intersecting circular rooms incorporates recycled steel, while the rooftop holds solar panels that will generate power for the pavilion during the day.
