Polish Pavilion at Expo 2010 Channels Cultural Tradition

 - Apr 10, 2009   Updated: Aug 16 2011
Inspired by the traditional motif of folk art papercut crafts, Polish architects won the bid to design the Polish Pavilion at Shanghai's Expo 2010.

The result is an eye-catching pavilion that looks like a folded sheet of paper with a cutout exterior. It will make an unforgettable impression during the day as the light plays around the building's interesting shapes. And at night, the Polish Pavilion will defiantly stand out and give the crowd a mesmerizing experience.

Implications - Though tradition was not at the forefront of the company's intentions, the architecturally unique pavillion marries tradition and innovation. Hoping to serve as an extension of history into the present day, the company was certainly inspired by decades past.
