Before storing movies and music on iCloud became the "in" thing in the net, CDs and DVDs was used and it is still utilized in creating copies of programs and files. But since they are classified hardware, they are likely to be thrown away and end up in our landfills thus contributing in the million of trashes filling them up and polluting our environment. That's why, MINIWIZ Sustainable Energy Development LTD. came up with an eco-value plan and that is to create aviation out of CDs and DVDs.
iGreen is an "an aviation museum featuring a 5D movie theater that will act as the centerpiece to Dream World park near Shanghai" as according to Inhabitat.com. "At a diameter of 50 meters the globe will be one of the largest spherical structures in the world, and it will be constructed using 100% recycled CDs and DVDs. In addition to housing the museum complex, iGreen will create a microclimate allowing tropical plants flourish."
The iGreen design was told to withstand any calamities including typhoon-strength gusts, acid rain, and UV radiation, and is being look forward as one of China's most impressive landmarks. “Normally extravagant structures like iGreen come at a steep premium," said Donald Saga Head of Project Management "Using up-cycled materials, modularization and speedy construction we were able to make this a commercially viable effort.”
The iGreen 5D Entertainment Center will be built at Shanghai and will be "World's First 5D Spherical Eco-Theater, embedded with an enchanted botanical garden and translucent canopy skin made from recycled DVDs & CDs" as described in their official website, miniwiz.com.
"Our firm has an unusual genetic makeup: structural engineers, architects, chemical engineers, and manufacturing specialists lean over the same problem set, creating never-before-seen interdisciplinary solutions," stated Jarvis Liu, R&D director at Miniwiz.
