HONG KONG PAVILION
Enclosed in traditional bamboo scaffolding, the Hong Kong Pavilion was one of the two pavilions designed by Bing Thom Architects (more pictures on their website).
Craftsman continuously changed the pavilion's facade throughout the fair. This dramatic act was an artistic gesture to symbolize the restless spirit of change and regeneration which has guided the development of Hong Kong from its earliest beginnings.
The pavilion took as its theme the contrast between "Silk and Silicon" to show the transition from Hong Kong's historic role as a coastal trader to its status as the industrial, financial and communications mecca of Asia.
Inside the pavilion, a 24 hour day in the life of Hong Kong was compressed into a lively nine-minute multi-media performance.
