Theme: The city, like a living being, needs the protection of humanity to remain healthy

Location: Within Zone B of the Expo Site

Pavilion Features

The pavilion is situated in the Theme Pavilion building in Zone B. The theme of life, or the city's journey of life, runs through all its exhibitions. In a metaphorical way with high scientific technologies, a city is compared to a living being consisting of body and soul. Metabolism and circulation are important for it to function properly. Constant adjustment between man and a city is the key for the health of the city being.

Pavilion Display

"Vigor Station" has five "kiosks" which represent population, logistics, energy, finance and information. The LCD display shows, on a real-time basis, the train, flight, ship, stock and foreign exchange information in the world's major cities. "Circulation System" leads visitors through vast underground pipes. The Pipeline section has many interactive features to highlight the vulnerability of cities and inspire visitors to contemplate their responsibilities towards the protection of cities. The City Plazas section features movies about five world-renowned city plazas and provides a clue to the cultural identities of different cities. The "library" in the City Street section tries to use ten books to show how ten cities' rise or fall impacts the life of people.
