A singular building, the Circular Pavilion has nothing round. The name describes the process, which follows the circular economy principles, according to which ones’ waste become others’ ressources. Faced with the depletion of natural resources and aims for the «Zero Metropolis Waste» ambition, this pavilion demonstrates the potential of re-use in architecture, which fits in the context of COP 21 (the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference) in Paris. About 60% of the implemented materials here finds a second life.
