Shanghai World Expo 2010 Culture Center

Shanghai World Expo 2010 Culture Center

Client: Shanghai World Expo 2010
Architect: East China Architect Design & Research Institute
Type of works: supply of Euramax wide-coil metal with EuraMica finish.

The Culture Center is one of four permanent pavillions for the Expo 2010. Its oval shape resembles a flying saucer that appears to have landed from outer space.

The Culture Center’s cladding consists of nearly 30,000 of Hunter Douglas' triangular shaped Quadroclad™ honeycomb panels in XXL size. This extraordinary size could only be achieved using Wide Coil material of 2,000mm width. The pearlescent, high-gloss EuraMica finish gives the building a crisp, fresh exterior. Especially by night, the light reflection makes the Culture Center a mystifying landmark.
