본 공모전은 ACTIVATE! Public Space Design Competition으로, Architecture for Humanity Chicago가 주최한 행사이다. 이 제안은 62번가와 드렉셀 가가 만나는 지점에 재활용 재료들을 활용한 폴리의 설치를 통해 사회적으로 소외되고 있는 어린이와 청소년들이 변화무쌍한 햇빛과 자연의 반사된 풍경을 보고 즐길 수 있는 공동체 공간을 조성하고자 하였다.
CDs/DVDs are made of polycarbonate plastic and aluminum. 300 cubic feet of natural gas, two cups of crude oils and 24 gallons of water are used to manufacture one pound of plastic or 30 CDs. Recycling Cds and DVDs saves a substantial amount of energy and prevents pollution attributed to the manufacturing of these items. Disks are considered as plastic #7, a catch-all category for many different kinds of products. They are not generally accepted in most community recycling programs. However, in Chicago, CDs and DVDs can be sent through the mail to CD recycling center and Green Disk. CDs can be recylcled for use in new products. By cooperating with schools in the neighborhood and community centers, all of disks can be collected to be reused for kaleioscopic parasols and igloos on the site to provide lively and vivid street furniture and play equipments and afterwards those can be sent to the recycling center.
