The ‘red door’ design conveys a message of welcome in both eastern and western cultures, symbolically transforming and transcending sustainable design in a harmonious embodiment of both cultures. The Pavilion reflects the ecology of the earth and how it works in a complex system of interdependent components to produce efficient and holistic energy for its survival. Combining the use of high and low-tech energy, the pavilion becomes a showcase for the future of our energy consumption.
