Design collective Luzinterruptus worked their artistic plastic magic last month with an illuminated plastic bottle installation at Singapore’s I Light Marina Bay , dubbed “Asia’s leading sustainable light art festival.” The massive glowing artwork, called Transitable Plastic, comprised seven movable walls hung beneath the Esplanade Bridge, one of the busiest transit areas in the bay. Designed to raise awareness about the “plastic binge,” the interactive artwork required visitors to physically move the plastic walls out of the way in order to get to the other side. Installed for approximately four weeks, Transitable Plastic was created with over 20,000 recycled plastic units collected from the community and local businesses including hotels, restaurants and shopping malls over the span of a month. Luzinterruptus vacuum packed the plastic bottles to create larger panels that were then strung together to form seven large walls. These makeshift walls were hung from metal scaffolding. The installation took 10 days to complete.

A more-than-a-minute-long walk among plastics which could bring about a bit of asphyxia and inevitably the thought of plastic and its related problems.” Transitable Plastic was fully disassembled at the end of the event and the materials were sorted and recycled. + Luzinterruptus Images by Colossal Pro

The Grand Council of Moselle in eastern France, is launching its very first performing arts festival this week, and Les Etablissements Tourneux  architect firm was commissioned to create a few pieces for the celebration. Located in the Archaeological Park Bliesbrück-Reinheim, this temple-like structure attempts to evoke the same upward leap to the heavens that’s often found in cathedrals . Constructed from just one type of wood, the boxes range in size and height, created with simple bracings and assembled with just one kind of screw. They’re assembled in such a way that the inside of the structure will either be concealed or revealed, depending on the observer’s position. The festival will run until mid July, so there’s ample time to check out the hundreds of creative exhibits, and check out these gorgeous cabin structures firsthand. + Les Etablissements Tourneux  + Cabanes Moselle Festival The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
