Belgians love their beer (hey, we love their beer too) so you know there's no shortage of plastic beer crates in the country. What to do with them all? If you're Brussels architecture firm SHSH, you design a massive pavilion using 33,000 of them. Built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1958 Universal World Exhibition in Brussels, the Bonheur Provisoire was dedicated to public film projections and exhibitions recounting the sights, sounds, and mood of the original event. Used like bricks, the plastic beer crates allowed the architects "to explore many common architectural features such as columns, arches, and domes."
