Thailand (Bangkok)
The largest building constructed entirely of paper had a base measuring 15.2 m x 17.9 m (49.8 ft x 58.7 ft), and was 6.4 m tall. The construction, which was unveiled at the APEC Investment Mart Thailand in Bangkok in October 2003, took the form of a traditional Thai house and was commissioned by the Thai Printing Association, the Thai Packaging Association, the Thai Printing Club and the Thai Corrugated Box and Paper Board Manufacturers Association. It was manufactured by Kwang Hua Industries. Only corrugated paper was used in this structure - no other materials such as wood or steel were used for support (see attached diagrams for further details).
