Dratz & Dratz: Recycled Paper Building

Designed by brothers Ben and Daniel Dratz, of Germany–based firm Dratz&Dratz Architekten, this temporary workspace is a 2,045-square-foot pavilion made of 550 bales of compressed paper recycled from local supermarkets. Speaking about the project Daniel said, "Rather unexpectedly, we passed by a
recycling station and saw these bales of used paper. We were fascinated by the structural variety and by the fragments of compressed information – like traces of society. Later we discovered that these bales could be layered and stacked to form monolithic walls, and we recognized the potential for architectural projects."
