China pavilion – shanghai expo 2010

previously posted my excitement for the Shanghai Expo. And here’s another pavilion that looks amazing!

The china pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010 is designed in the shape of an oriental crown, showcasing the spirit of traditional chinese culture. its main structure includes a six layer, 30 meter high roof made of  56 traditional wooden brackets. the brackets symbolize the nation’s 56 minority ethnic groups.

The 160,000-square-meter pavilion will be converted into a museum for chinese history and culture after the expo closes in 2010.
