Lantern pavilion made from recycled water bottles: Rising Moon

A hemispheric art installation made from recycled plastic bottles and LEDs lights-up the Hong Kong cityscape. Hong Kong-based studio Daydreamers Design have conceived “Rising Moon”, an illuminating geodesic dome created for the mid-autumn festival “Lantern Wonderland 2013” in Victoria Park.

4,800 Five-gallon polycarbonate water bottles act as individual beacons, referencing the cavernous shape of traditional chinese paper lanterns. The plastic-contained LED torches are attached to pre-fabricated triangular modules and are assembled as a pavilion, whose interior is fitted with a sea of 2,300 bottles hanging in an undulating formation from the ceiling.

An opening at the crown of the 20-meter-diameter sphere allows moonlight to pass inside, lighting-up both in the internal space as well as the reflective pool of water it sits on. The position of the floating sculpture manifests refractions of changing lunar phases on the surface of the water. Following its deconstruction, the temporary space will be completely recycled, promoting Hong Kong as a sustainable city.
