EXPO / China

UN pavilion at EXPO, Shanghai

Client: UN-HABITAT / Kenya 



By reusing some of the elements from the exhibition in Rio, we created a interesting experience in a rather empty area where the audience so far had spent very little time. New topics were included since it was not only a UN-HABITAT exhibition, but the whole UN. Refugees, children and “how many people are living for under a dollar a day” were some of the new buildings.
