China Pavilion Guide

-Travel to China Pavilion

The China Pavilion is designed with the concept of "Oriental Crown." The traditional Chinese wooden structure element, Dougong brackets, is introduced. Its main color is "Gugong (Forbidden City) Red" which represents the taste and spirit of Chinese culture.Draped in red cloth, China's pavilion at the 2010 World Expo is at first glance a very obviously Chinese structure. When the mysterious red veil is lifted, however, China Pavilion is revealed as a complex structure that celebrates a diverse range of traditional Chinese elements, including architecture, calligraphy, gardening and urban planning.

The main structure of the China Pavilion, "The Crown of the East," has a distinctive roof, made of traditional dougong brackets, which has a history dating back more than 2,000 years.The dougong style features wooden brackets fixed layer upon layer between the top of a column and a crossbeam. This unique structural component of interlocking wooden brackets is one of the most important elements in traditional Chinese architecture. The China Pavilion is converted into a museum for Chinese history and culture after the Expo closes in 2010.
