Archstorming is calling for proposals to design the pavilion that would represent your country in a Universal Exposition. The pavilion must be located on a plot of a maximum of 10,000 m2 and the only limitation is its technical viability. The objective is to build a didactic pavilion that could show the world the best of each country taking advantage of the international visibility of a Universal Exposition, using its architecture to improve the image of your nation.
The World’s Fair is a fascinating beast. Arising from its first incarnation, The Great Exhibition at the Crystal Palace in London in 1851, for more than a century and a half the ‘Expo’ has moved around the world operating on essentially the same original principle – an opportunity to show off your country’s wares. It’s an amazing history from Joseph Paxton’s first Palace, to Gustave Eiffel’s Tower, to Mies’ architecture-changing German Pavilion in Barcelona. With all this weighty history behind them, the temporary buildings of the Expo carry both the expectation for innovation and the heavy burden of representing a whole country.
