PostSubject: Polands Cut Out Shanghai Pavillion   Wed Dec 08, 2010 12:06 pm

With the Shanghai World Expo 2010 looming ever closer various countries are revealing their pavilions that they hope will wow the rest of the world in their ingenuity and beauty. The Polish pavilion will however literally be cutting edge stuff.

Instead of building the pavilion from brick, mortar or glass the polish will be exhibiting their traditional paper cutting talents by using wood and laser "scissors" to cut out the walls that will make up the highly artistic entry that will be an exhibit in itself.

The pavilion, which was one of twenty possible designs, will have the appearance of being constructed from a large sheet of white construction paper that is oblong in shape and 3,000 square metres in size.

Rising from the ground the pavilion tapers slightly as it rises and will feature a ramp which runs from the entrance up to the rooftop where a restaurant will be sited serving a variety of traditional Polish fayre. At night the structure will be lit from within, making the cut out figures seem to come alive and dance in the moonlight.

The inner walls which are solid will be used to project images of polish life during the expo and exhibitions will include an exhibition on "future cities" the wooden ground floor will lead upwards to an auditorium space where visitors can watch performances going on below the space, while the roof space will have open air film screenings, theatrical performances and concerts. When the expo is over part of the structure will be reconstructed in polish city yet to be chosen.

The inspiration for the design comes from the polish tradition of paper cutting where masters of the craft can cut intricate patterns out continuously without having to clip any pieces of paper off midway.
