January 2021 The office of engineering firm IMd will be given a new addition in the form of a pavilion made from recycled PET bottles. It is a first: for the first time this material is used constructively in the form of a self-supporting construction. The pavilion will be placed on one of the crane tracks in the former factory building, which was previously transformed by Ector Hoogstad Architecten into a surprising office environment. Years of material research in collaboration with TU Delft preceded the construction of the pavilion. The 300 kg shells have a parametrically optimized shape and are currently, after some corona-delay, being printed in Spain by Nagami. The pavilion is an experiment and part of an ongoing research into new techniques and materials. An experiment that cannot fail: in that case the PET material is simply reused.
