In China, A Nike Concept Store Made Out Of Trash

Although the newest Nike concept store in Shanghai is made of trash, it sure doesn’t seem like it.

Designed by the Taiwanese architectural firm, Miniwiz Sustainable Development Ltd, the store was built using 2,000 PET water bottles, 50,000 DVDs and CDs, as well as 5,500 soda cans.

The water bottles were used to make 2,000 yards of wire tension, with the joints being made from 5,278 aluminum cans.

The CDs complete the grungy interior by decorating the ceiling, making the vibrant colors of Nike’s shoes stand out.
