With the intention of creating a versatile architecture pavilion that could be set up in a variety of different configurations, Mexican designers Ubicuo Diseño and Deriva Colectivo have designed a small, Miesian container that can be modified to adapt to its surroundings. The plan calls for a platform that’s made of rectangular PET bottles that fit together to form a solid surface. “Knowing that we would use PET bottles, we decided to put lighting on the boards that were between the bottles and create a diaphanous platform to illuminate the entire pavilion inside and so create a carpet of light at the same time and that could be seen from the outside,” the designers explain.
