This awesome pavilion constructed by the students of Newcastle University was made from recycled pallets wrapped with hessian and stuffed with straw. The pavilion was constructed to showcase how architecture should be aware of its natural environment and how it can foster reciprocal ecological relationships. The students intended to raise awareness of the exceptional wildlife corridors that run through Newcastle upon Tyne and their biodiversity, and from a sustainable perspective, to show to the general public how building materials can be locally sourced and recycled.
