The Austrian pavilion at Expo Shanghai 2010, opening venue May, 1st.
After 9 months of construction the Austrian Pavilion for the Shanghai Expo 2010 is completed and due to open May 1st.
A biomorphic volume covered with a shimmering porcelain skin: the presentation of the Austrian Pavilion at the 2010 World Exposition. “The architecture for the project is based on the ideas of continuity, seamless surfaces and smooth transitions between spaces — a concept that is geared to develop a continuous flow within the pavilion while providing a subtle blending between the outside and the inside” (Matias del Campo, SPAN). The gradient transition of colour on the façade, the design of the bar and the consoles as well as details, such as the cladding of the ceiling spotlights, apply this concept in a rigorous way.
