Pavilion of Urban Planet

2010-04-18 15:38:27 GMT2010-04-18 23:38:27 (Beijing Time)

Theme: Humanity in symbiosis with city and planet

Location: Within Zone B of the Expo Site

Pavilion Features

The pavilion is located in the Theme Pavilion building in Zone B. The top of two parallel spiral ramps offers a good view of a 32-meter-diameter globe. Its five sections including "Blue Planet" and "The Only Planet We Have" tell how the development, sometimes overdevelopment, of cities produces ecological problems, and how people awaken to urbanization and environmental challenges. Visitors come to understand cities as a source of both problems and solutions.

Pavilion Display

Blue Planet is a huge globe that represents the earth. In a poetic and metaphorical way, it tells how cities, urban development and human behaviors impact the earth. "The Only Planet We Have" is an interesting short movie about the interaction between cities, the earth and people.
