Brazilian Pavillion for Shanghai Expo 2010 / Fernando Brandão

AsBEA (Brazilian Association of the Offices of Architecture) and APEX (Brazilian Agency of Promotion of Exports and Investments) have announced the winning project to represent Brazil in the Shanghai World Expo 2010. Architect Fernando Brandão won with a design based on the “Pulsing Cities” of Brazil. The inverted parenthesis on the facade represent that pulsation.

The structure will feature recycled wood painted green which will be leaned on a metallic structure. You can find more information here (in Portuguese). More images after the break.
