Expo Sevilha 92

This project is the furthest from a monolithic, static architecture; instead, the construction is more like a process, almost a set décor. The most interesting aspect about this project is that it grew from a significantly pragmatic aspect: Brazil’s desire to create a pavilion for the World Expo in Seville, Spain – between April and September 1992 – that could easily be disassembled. Composed of five floors, the pavilion was almost like a skeleton, a stripped down exhibit booth. Inside, the structure features theatres, special sound corridors, exhibits, and spherical elevators to transport visitors between floors and enhance the technological image of the construction.
