POLLI BRICK PAVILION IN TAIPEI

 

by Kevin Stoda

Since I arrived last summer in Taiwan for the first time in nearly 2 decades, I have been impressed by the society's almost revolutionary change towards the environment and in attitudes towards recycling.   One green product made from recycled plastic wastes here are Polli-Bricks.   Such   Polli-Bricks were originally created by MINIWIZ, a sustainable development firm, which focuses on energy, biodesigns, and recycling.   The advert on the company's website says of the Polli-Brick:   "Your Trash, Our ECO Building Material."

A POLLI-Brick is a "recycled polymer bottle that can be interlocked to build an incredible array of structures". It is made from recycled PET bottles, the lightweight bricks offer excellent acoustic and thermal insulation and can build anything from fences and roofs to pots for plants, skylights and beautiful walls of light."

In 2010, the enormous EcoArk Pavilion was created for a major international exhibition in Taipei.   The building is currently featured in a National Geographic special which shines a light on the world's "Modern Wonders".
