    Annually Rise Education invites students from all over China to think about the future of health, transportation, society, education, art & design. In celebration of the Rise Cup competition we were approached to design, 3D print and construct the Guinness World Record’s largest 3D printed pavilion.


    DeFacto is constantly trying to challenge design and fabrication norms. The Rise Pavilion is no exception. Constructed with over five thousand 3D printed biodegradable polymer blocks, the pavilion features a modular and transformable design. The Poly-Blocks' Lego-like connection system gives it versatility, not only in form, but also in function. Individually the Poly-Block functions as a vessel for lamps, plants, and even humidifiers.


    After the competition, each Rise student will receive a Poly-Block to explore its up-cycling potentials. We hope that the Rise Pavilion will get younger generations thinking about production cycles and encourage a move towards multi-functional goods, decreasing the amount of products made, packaged, and shipped.
