The recycling cycle looks capable of generating a space experience carrying to the limit the possibilities than offers a constructive a material so singular like the brik. The pavilion's construction will issues associated to a new wall worked out of the sewn, piling up, juxtaposition, jammed, etc., of a milk brik. Almost 1320 (1200 pupils in the picking up and 120 in the construction) people's collaboration at this pavilion's construction became an enormous challenge in connection with the idea of recycling. It was intended to sell off The biggest construction made with bricks as a consequence of the Worldwide day of recycling as part of a series of national and international events to raise someone's consciousness of the importance of the treatment of the destroyed and the garbage produced by the human being in relation to the protection of the eco system. The performance would be in a global level, where the several countries activated various mechanisms to celebrate this moment nail down for the ecological conscience. That way various organizations related to this theme organized multitude of events, graphic, written, urban, telecasted campaigns and different kinds of activities. In the case of the action that we presented, the one belonging to TetraBriks's Pavilion, it would focus on the recycling of a kind of a particular container, the standard milk cardboard, the tetrabrik. The choice of this element is due to the badly recycling that becomes habitually. The brick is usually treated as cardboard, but this is a plastic element, basically formed by five stratified capes, which three plates are of polyethylene plastic, that one is of aluminium, and that only one is of of cardboard. In that sense the challenge of constructing Tetrabriks's pavilion as part of the local campaign to raise 's consciousness on the recycling of the plastic containers getting the World Record Guinness Prize of the biggest construction made of recycled materials. THE PAVILION AS PART OF A RECYCLING CYCLE in a collaborative experience. The project starts up in the used cardboard of milk. An intense informative display at several high schools of the city of Granada we got close to 45,000 containers for the realization of the pavilion, space constructed exclusively with this element. A new constructive system starts in the briks's joints , made with simple and resistant material which do not impede the later recycling of the pavilion : The staples and bridles would enable to holding the one-piece eyelashes with the other one forming angles of 135. The system would give priority to minimize the number of necessary type elements with the bigger possible versatility. We created 2 units of self-supporting modules t: The wall, as the piece bases solid with its window variant (to give transparency and to leave to pass light )and the tower, like piece nucleus that joins two pieces host lineally or in the perpendicular. It has definitively to do with a Milk Kit that, like pieces of a LEGO, and enable the bigger facility of put-up in the record time of 2 weeks. The School of architecture of Granada would take over, thanks to 120 students from the 1st YEAR, of the construction in several phases. The first stage, which takes 15 days, consisted in the pre-put-up of elements at the school for a later transportation to the event's place where it would proceed to the definite putting together. From very simple construction instructions, each student group had to manufacture 3 piece (one of each kind). In that way it was gotten in a week to gather at the architectural school the 300 modules that were assembled for the manufacturing of the pavilion. In a second phase, during 3 days , already in the Park of Sciences where the event took place, the pieces stuck imbedding them some in other ones, and shoring up the walls with bags of sand in his base creating a counter-weight against the wind and the possible pushes. Like a lobby to the inferior access of the Park tower lookout, the pavilion is developed as a some kind of labyrinth creating a variety of internal spaces: Patios of several sizes that collect the existent woodland, different passages with varied heights sometimes covered with beams in the shape of branches of Tetrabriks and a tower of 7m that gathered light and shades through his walls of window blind. The pavilion would remove to a recycling plant building after of two weeks as the final part of the process...no print would left back.
