    I think the most interesting thing about this project is the structure of the spiral, creating a huge cantilever without columns. It would like to see some construction pictures and sections to check how they made it.

    When I first saw renderings for this, my mouth was watering. It is so beautiful in concept. Seeing the final product is really nice, although I wish they would have stuck with a skin patterning more true to their original concept of wrapping a perforated skyline around the helix it seems they went with random bende dot pattern… which. Is a bit of a loss. I really wanna see it at night though!

    I would love to see it ‘alive’ with people cycling on it, maybe just to pristine and white!

    I don’t know how that is structurally possible in a place like Shanghai, but I must admit I admire the simplicity and the beauty of this project. I think it’s one of the best pavilions at the Shanghai Expo. Sheer Bjarke brilliance.

    I went there.
    Must say that overall design is pretty good, but details are not.
    BIG uses white floor, which turns out to be dirty, once people walking on it.
    Also some details of the continuous bench (which I do love) are not well executed for some reason.

    Overall, it is still great to visit though.

    Ah the eternal problem of how to hang pictures on a curved wall. Nice though

  • Peer

    It’s not a good BIG project it a great Arup AGU project, so credit to the ones who deserve it

  • MAI

    Peer.
    dumb f…
    It´s is also BIG who made Libary where the Collaborators are Arup agu.
    The danish and the english pavillon is for sure the coolest and most original objects on this years EXPO!

  • OLGV.

    I’m sort of fed up of this Bjerke dude… I got he’s diagramatic, superficial way of designing… now, can we move along the platform pleeeas…

    comment:
    They went for the “random dot pattern” for structural reasons. it is perforated where there is no need for support, and solid where it needs to.
