Polish Pavilon EXPO 2010

2010 Shanghai, China

The Polish Pavilion Expo 2010 reflects the combination of contemporary technological and multimedia achievements and the folklore tradition. The project has been developed by a team of architects: Marcin Mostafa, Natalia Paszkowska and Wojciech Kakowski. The Pavilion resembles an abstract shape the size 20mx50m with characteristic motifs of folk art paper cutting. The pavilion owes its colour to the use of natural wooden construction materials and the folk art patterns have been cut on the CNC machine tool in water-resistant plywood remote mounted to elements of a steel structure. At dusk, the elevation changes colour, depending on the light getting through the cut patterns.

The material used for construction of the wall elements was the Finnish birch plywood.

Arser Wood Polska participated in realization of the project as sub-contractor for Koskisen OY. The Finnish producer of plywood was responsible for supplying plywood for construction of the walls. The plywood was subject to processing on the CNC machines so as to obtain the pattern according to the project.
