Every visitor will have a different experience and avatar at the Japanese Pavilion
It’s 2pm and a blistering 38°C, but the moment you step into the Japanese Pavilion at the Expo 2020 site, a gentle breeze welcomes you. No, we are not indoors yet and there are no fans around. It is all thanks to origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, which has inspired the design of the pavilion façade. Designed by the Japanese architect, Yuko Nagayama, the white exterior uses natural airflow to cool the pavilion.
