These times of constant evolution, linked with mass-consumption, produce an unexpected surplus of recyclable objects. The VHS-cassette is only one of them. The materials it consists of can not be melted again and contains different materials that make recycling very expensive.

Therefore we can only get rid of them by burning or dumping in a landfil. By developing an alternative use of the cassettes, we can save the environment from a serious amount of waste. Shape, size and colour are remarkably similar to that of a slate tile.

Starting from that position the roofing of this pavilion consists entirely of VHS-cassettes.
