Canadian wood construction on display at Shanghai
2010. 26 May
Canadian expertise in wood construction is on display at the Shanghai Expo 2010, which opened May 1 and closes Oct. 31. The federal government invested $ 2.5 million to build the three-storey pavilion.
The 900 square metre building showcases the development of Vancouver from Expo 86 to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
The first level features the history of the northern False Creek area, while the second level promotes wood as a natural, sustainable building material and wood-frame technology as energy efficient, earthquake resistant and cost-competitive.
Third-floor meeting rooms will be used to host Chinese developers, engineers, architects and government officials.
