There are no systematic solutions for the re-use of the shells.
Finding a suitable application
I’ve looked into the seashells’ properties: their heat resistance, rigidity, hardness, resistance to compression, flexibility and impact
This product aims to restore the cycle of the raw material, bringing the shells back to the seascape - resulting on a modular pavement system for temporary use in events at the beach
Context of MEX
Events at the beach, such as surf championships, volleyball tournaments, music festivals, that place infrastructures on site over the course of a few days or weeks.
An easy assembly system was designed so the blocks can be set up in a short time
Assembly of the modules.
After being used
the pavement blocks can stay in the landscape, repurposed as sand dune stabilizers and blending with nature over time.
