The load-bearing structure of the pavilion is largely made from reused steel originating from a disused coal-fired power plant in north-western Germany.
The façades and roof are clad in panels manufactured from recycled bottles glass and industrial glass waste.
The furniture is built from recycled HDPE plastic waste, while the chairs are 3D printed from plastic household waste.
Last but not least, the floor of the pavilion as well as the landscape design of the garden forms an assemblage of various reused and recycled materials and products made from mineral construction and demolition waste. They are set in steel frames, representing the ‘fallen leaves’ of the tree structure.
Concrete and brick fractures in various grain sizes directly reused clinker bricks and WasteBasedBricks® (Radish Raw, Blackpepper Raw, Salami Raw, Salt+Pepper Raw) from StoneCycling are used.
The area between the leaves is formed as a water-bound area of porcelain quarry. Broken plates and cups from production scrap and recycling yards are ground for this purpose and applied as a pure base layer.
