Architecture firm Encore Heureux, have designed the Circular Pavilion, a temporary building in Paris, made with recycled materials.

It can currently be seen on the parvis de l’Hôtel de Vill, and will host exhibitions, workshops, lectures and debates. At the beginning of 2016, the pavilion will be dismantled and reinstalled permanently in Paris’ 14th district as a sports association’s clubhouse.

The pavilion was made from waste taken from construction sites, erroneous orders or unused stocks. Each of the materials implemented has its own story.

180 wooden doors, disposed of during a housing rehabilitation operation in Paris’ 19th district, form the facade.

The wooden framework is made of left over pieces from the construction site of a retirement home, while the ground and the partition walls consist of former exhibition’s walls.

When it comes to the furniture, 50 wooden chairs were saved from the landfill, and were fixed and painted.
