In Lebanon we have few recycling plants, therefore it would be beneficial to add Paper World to the list as a new leader of this industry, where we can find quality carboard that can be used as boxes and greeting cards to designing furniture. The concept of the project revolves around experimental folding techniques done by paper and a fold diagram transforming the 2D paper into a 3D space with 4D experience where the public will learn about the process of this product. The ground floor is divided between an open market extending horizontally the road onto the project and a workshop where the paper machine takes place. Voids were created allowing dynamism into the project, where people can overlook the process of production from different levels. Moreover, different openings and skylight were implemented through different folds of the walls and the roof allowing light and ventilation into the project.
