Expo 2010 Shanghai is the most ambitious World Expo to date, designed to welcome more than 70 million visitors. It boasts a remarkable collection of pavilions that represent the ambitions of individual nations as well as a collective vision for cities in the new millennium.
Together, these buildings constitute a cross-section of contemporary trends by some of the world's leading architects, showcasing a full spectrum of cutting-edge technology, building materials and design sensibilities.
This book captures this extraordinary architectural event with the eloquent photography of Nic Lehoux coupled with the critical insights of Rodolphe el-Khoury and Andrew Payne.
The thorough documentation includes detailed photographic records and plans of the various architectural features and of the public spaces and landscapes that bind them into a unique environment. The accompanying text situates the event in a longstanding tradition of international exhibitions while underscoring the particular geographic, cultural and political aspects of contemporary China that shape the Shanghai Expo and its guiding theme 'Better City - Better Life'.
