YEOSU EXPO THEMATIC PAVILION

Public & Cultural 

Yeosu, Republic of Korea

Winning Competition, 2012

To achieve this concept, the Pavilion features 3 primary elements: 1. The Multi-Functioning Tower system, inspired by the archipelago islands, supports  pedestrian traffic, airflow and daylight distribution in the buildings; 2. The Smart Living Roof system, characterizing the ocean surface, is a tubular truss system complete with sustainable elements  such as Teflon louvers and solar panels, and creates dramatic  wave-like aesthetics  while protecting Expo visitors from the sun; 3. The Interactive Ground System, i.e. building mass and decks beneath the roof truss that reflect the foreshore, contain the exhibitions of the Expo. The Pavilion is organized in 2 major axes: an Expo Digital Gallery and a Connecting Green. The Expo Digital Gallery displays the modern technology of the Expo, offering a vibrant commercial streetscape.  In contrast, the Connecting Green is a connection between the waterfront and the Expo Town.  This connection is composed of weaving pathways and articulated landscape.
