german pavilion at shanghai expo 2010

the german pavilion at shangahi 2010
the german pavilion, ‘balancity’, will be completed around april 2010 for the shanghai expo,
said its chief architect lennart wiechell.

the 6,000-square-meter structure will be germany’s largest at any expo. it will showcase
german urban life and how the country’s design and products can help solve urbanization

rather than being conceived as a building, the pavilion is meant to be a three-dimensional
walk-through sculpture with no defined interior or exterior. for visitors the journey
will start at the harbour and lead through gardens and parks, via a town planning office
and a factory and past the opera to end at the ‘energy source’, the city’s power plant.
