Shanghai Expo

Shanghai Expo

Open Architectural competition for the Finnish pavillion for Shanghai Expo 2010. 3000 m2. Held in 2008.

The entry focuses on the basic needs for good life: sunlight and water. The building is built out of temporary stuctures and the shape of the building serves in collecting both the rainwater and the sunlight to create a spectacle of vaporized water and light. The inside of the building is an open and flexible hall with natural lighting.

Our work includes developing, studying and producing architectural projects that answer the client’s needs in a unique, cost-efficient, rational and aesthetically pleasing synthesis.

The design process consists of analysing the special features of each site and program. Our Architecture grows from hard work and a high level of commitment. We believe that the only way to build sustainable cities and buildings is to use real solid materials, solve all the functions in a flawless way and give every space and building its own unique appearance – a soul.
