The expo pavilion is a complex problem of displaying the future of technology, culture, and life with today’s capabilities. To take a look forward and to examine not only what is on display but the aperture that holds that promise of a better city, better life.  In the long tradition of Expo innovations, the Shadow Pavilion pushes today’s ideas of formation and structure to the next step; by looking at complex organizations and the integration of the two ideas.


The dynamic structural organization of parametric component logic creates intensities which shapes the flowing canopy overhead; which in turn, produces the ever changing patterning produced by the sun’s play on the structure. The seamless transitions of the pavilion’s material aggregation and structural patterns promise an experience that is both vibrant and elegant and will reshape the way people think about their surroundings.
