Since the invention of the product in 1950, over 100 billion BIC pens have been produced—now, 10,000 of those pens make up The BIC Structure, an experimental pavilion constructed by AAU Anastas,  Landolf Rhode-Barbarigos from the University of Miami and Yann Santerre for the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures (IASS) symposium in Amsterdam.
