Expo Zaragoza 2008, architecture showcase

World Fairs have set miletones in architecture. The Crystal Palace (London 1851), the Eiffel Tower (Paris 1889) and the amazing buildings of the recent Expo Hannover 2000 are some examples.

This year, the Expo Zaragoza in Spain (June 14th – Sept 14th) features an astonishing pavillion/bridge by Zaha Hadid, and buildings by spanish architects Nieto y Sobejano, Francisco Mangado and Basilio Tobías. Below, pictures sent by spanish photographer Pedro Pegenaute.

This pavillion doubles as a pedestrian bridge over the Ebro river. Its structured by 4 “pods” that serve as exhibitio spaces. By Zaha Hadid and Arup.

Designed by Basilio Tobias. The skin of the tower makes it look like a giant lamp, a landmark for the expo
