The design is such that plants will be placed along the walls and interior of the panels, and “DW Fiber” will be used as the planting soil for these plants, helping to color the venue with its rich natural beauty.
The panels used on the walls of “Toilet 7” are manufactured using a 3D printer using reusable resin, and even after the Osaka/Kansai Expo, the panels will be crushed and made into pellets, and the materials used in the 3D printer will be used again. It can be used as. Additionally, Toilet 7 is a facility with a variety of sustainability possibilities, including the ability to relocate the building to another location.

* ●About the soil improvement material “DW Fiber”*
This soil improvement material is made by specially defibrating domestic wood chips and adding fulvic acid*, which has the effect of promoting plant growth. By mixing it with soil, it improves the physical properties of the soil such as water retention and water permeability, as well as improves the chemical properties of the soil through its effect of efficiently supplying minerals and its pH buffering effect, which contributes to greening. It can be used for soil improvement work that is not suitable as a base for planting or planting.
In addition to soil improvement work by mixing it with soil, it can be used in a wide range of construction methods and applications, including aerial greening work in mountainous areas and greening work using vegetation mats.
*Fulvic acid:
A useful humic acid that exists in forests and soil. It is effective in activating photosynthesis in plants and promoting production. Kokudo Disaster Prevention Technology Co., Ltd. has obtained a patent on technology for artificially producing fulvic acid.
