Hanover Expo 2000

  • Comment

The Hanover Expo 2000 starts today and engineer Buro Happold has produced the Japan pavilion in association with Japanese architect Shigeru Ban. The design for the 72m long temporary hall features reusable steel tubes, cardboard tubes and paper cladding. No foundations will be left after the £1 billion Expo is over.

The Expo has been masterplanned by Frankfurt practice Albert Speer & Partners, which is headed by the son of Hitler's former architect (who is the subject of a play at London's National Theatre).
