The main structure of the China Pavilion. It is called "the Crown of the East", which has a distinctive roof, made of traditional dougong or brackets. This style dates back more than 2,000 years. Picture by Yibin Dong.
The Korean Pavilion is an amalgamation of "sign" (symbol) and "space". Signs become spaces, and simultaneously, spaces become signs. Picture taken by Yang Jiang.
The Spanish Pavilion has a wicker facade over a steel structure. It aims to express the meaning of a bridge between East and West, and among Spain and China. Picture taken by Yang Jiang.
The Polish Pavilion is inspired by traditional Polish folk art paper cut-outs, but reinterpreted in a contemporary fashion. The building focuses on exploring the importance of the personal experience between buildings and people. Visitors can climb onto the roof of the building by using the ramp created by the folded exterior. Picture taken by Yibin Dong.
The Netherlands Pavilion is known as "Happy Street." It is constructed in a figure eight, a lucky number in Chinese culture. Built completely on stilts, the street looks like a suspended roller coaster. Picture taken by Urvaksh.
The Turkish Pavilion, Cradle of Civilization. The pavilion looks like an amazing red and beige box with an animal sculpture, inviting visitors to explore a maze of dreams. Picture taken by Yibin Dong.
The German Pavilion aims to create a "harbor image" and a "dynamic tunnel" with urban scenes from Germany. This is the "Balancity," a magnificent crystallization of Germanic originality and technology. Picture taken by Urvaksh.
The Romanian Pavilion derives from the color and environmental implications of green. The shape comes from Romania's most popular fruits, the apple. Together it represents a "green city," "healthy life" and the concept of sustainable development. Picture taken by Urvaksh.
The Saudi Arabian Pavilion features a huge hanging boat shaped like a half moon. The "moon boat" is loaded with dreams and friendship. Picture taken by Urvaksh.
The USA Pavilion "is a mammoth gray steel structure meant to resemble an eagle stretching its wings in welcome. The pavilion presents a dynamic and emotional story that conveys four core concepts: sustainability, teamwork, health and the spirit of striving for success." Picture taken by Urvaksh.
The Swiss Pavilion is combination of technological insight and beautiful dream. It shows "the characteristics of modern Switzerland, including the pursuit of excellence, innovation and high-quality life, as well as concepts of future facing, forward looking and sustainable development." Picture taken by Urvaksh.
The Italian Pavilion comes from the children's game "pick-up-sticks," which is known as "Shanghai" in Italy. Picture taken by Wei Qian.
The Russian Pavilion "reflects the ideas of transformation of urban communities, the potential Russian cities have, and their relationships with neighboring territories." Picture taken by Yibin Dong.
