HK is most characterized by relationships: international link/ infrastructure/ IT & telecommunication/ free trade.
The design of the pavilion expresses these invisible relationships through a matrix, in which inscribed programmes have no predetermined order and association amongst elements is free. Invisible lines running between events are manifested physically.
The diversified programmes for exhibition (multi-sensory/ interactive, real/ virtual, dynamic/ static) are juxtaposed in a compacted manner, thereby providing an experience of diversity and density.
Fast Experience - An escalator locates in the central atrium would bring visitors to the top floor. Visitors could have a preview of the exhibition through the atrium while traveling through the escalator.
Slow Experience - As visitors leave the escalator, they would descend through a spiral stair circumscribing the atrium and linking across all exhibits. These exhibits are contained in specific environments (indoor/ outdoor, big/ small, open/ enclosed, light/ dark).
Prefabricated modules of exhibition space with exhibits would be adopted to enhance the design of relationship between exhibits and their environment: a total design. Modules could be easily assembled on site. After the EXPO, the exhibition pavilion could be dismantled, transported back to HK and then reassembled for all HK citizens and tourists to visit.
