USA Pavilion group for Shanghai Expo adds Yum Brands as sponsor in lengthy fundraising quest
27 May 2009

SHANGHAI (AP) - Fine Australian wines, French gourmet dining, Korean kimchee -- and good old American fried chicken and pizza.

Visitors to the 2010 Shanghai World Expo will be able to chow down on American fast food staples, among many other cuisines, with a decision by Louisville, Kentucky-based Yum Brands Inc. to become a sponsor for the U.S. pavilion.

Yum, owner of fast food brands including KFC and Pizza Hut, signed on Tuesday as the first food and restaurant sponsor for the pavilion, as the U.S. fundraising effort dragged on.

Construction has already begun for most national pavilions for the Expo, expected to be the world's largest with up to 70 million visitors. But U.S. organizers are still working to gather needed private sector funding with less than a year before the event opens on May 1, 2010.

The delays have raised eyebrows in China, and drawn worried comments from local officials who are keen to see America represented along with 180 other countries.

A joke circulating in Shanghai before Yum signed on was that the plot allotted for the pavilion, which is meant to be a showcase for American culture, values, and businesses and celebrate U.S.-China friendship, could instead be turned into a U.S.-style fast-food outlet.

It looks like it might be both.

"The United States' presence at the Expo is of great significance not only to the Sino-U.S. relationship, but to the bilateral trade and cultural exchanges between the Chinese and American peoples as well," said Eric Han, KFC brand general manager for Yum's China division.

No financial figures for the agreement were disclosed -- as has been the case for most sponsorship agreements so far. It remains unclear how much more money needs to be raised of the $61 million organizers say is needed to build and operate the pavilion.

Han said he hoped Yum's sponsorship deal would encourage more companies to support the U.S. Expo project.

Other sponsors include St. Paul, Minnesota-based 3M, Dell Inc., General Electric Co. and the USA-China Education, Science & Culture Association, a newly created Chinese-American community group.

U.S. law requires that national exhibits at Expos be funded and operated through nonprofit organizations. Although the U.S. State Department oversees such projects, it cannot use congressionally appropriated funds to build or operate them.

The lack of public funding has complicated efforts to get Expo pavilions built in recent years, and the global downturn has made raising funds doubly hard, despite appeals from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other U.S. officials.

"I hope you will strongly consider joining us in this important endeavor," Clinton said in a recent letter to the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.

China is a key market for Yum, whose KFC outlets have been a hit among Chinese diners since they first opened in Beijing in the early 1990s. Yum's more than 2,100 KFC outlets and more than 350 Pizza Huts in China reported 21.5 billion yuan ($3 billion) in revenues in 2007.

Company executives say they expects Yum's China division to achieve its target of 20 percent profit growth next year.

Migrant life to greet China Pavilion visitors

By Yang Jian | 2009-6-12 | ONLINE EDITION

CHINA'S vast migration from rural to urban areas over the past 30 years will be the theme for the first section of the China Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo.

A senior Expo official yesterday unveiled the exhibition plans at a press conference in the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

The pavilion will have a "core exhibition area" on the top story, an "experience area" on the second story and a "functional area" on the ground, said Chen Xianjin, deputy director general of the bureau.

The main exhibition area in the 63-meter China Pavilion will be its 30-meter upper section.

The Expo organizer said China's achievements in urban development from ancient to modern times will be the core theme of the China Pavilion. Some core philosophies of China's development, such as "constantly striving to become stronger" and "regard nature as the teacher" will be highlighted.

Visitors will first be taken to the top of the pavilion by lifts which will look like trains carrying China's migrant workers to urban towns, Chen said.

At the top visitors will see a film "The Migration of Hundreds of Millions" which will picture the past and present lives of the country's migrant workers.
The film will show Chinese experiences of large-scale migration, he said.

More than 300 million Chinese people have moved to cities from rural areas, an important step of the country's 30-year reform and opening to the outside world, he added.

Other exhibitions on the top floor, which will cover 16,000 square meters, will showcase the conditions of modern Chinese cities, the wisdom that the ancient Chinese used to tackle urban problems and China's future strategy for urban development. Paintings by children will illustrate the possible future look of cities.

The organizer will divide the exhibition into sections like the "Wisdom of History," the "Story of Spring" and the "Hope of Earth," Chen said, adding the organizer is still working on detailed plans.

The "experience area" will cover 8,000 square meters and will feature interactive games, inviting visitors to plan Chinese cities.

The "functional area" will exhibit new technologies that will contribute to a better life.

The organizer is polishing the exhibition plan and will publicize details late this year, Chen said.

Work on the exterior of the pavilion is due to be finished on July 25. Exhibition outfitting will begin on September 30 and be finished before the end of 2009.

More than 9 million people are expected to visit the China Pavilion. The 2010 event will attract a total of 70 million visitors.

Italy Pavillion for Shanghai Expo 2010






Our friend Marcello Silvestre, from Iodice Architetti sent us their design por the Italian Pavillion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010. Silvestre, along with Francesco Iodice and Giuseppe Iodice from Iodice Architetti worked with Giampaolo Imbrighi, Teresa Crescenzi, Antonello De Bonis, and Cosimo Dominelli in the design of the pavillion. The project proposes a building which integrates a typical model of the Italian urban building, with the architectural structure of the Chinese construction game called Shanghai. More images and architect’s description after the break.

The pavilion covers an area of 3.600 square metres and is 18 metres high. Inside it is divided into irregular sections of different dimensions, connected by a steel bridge structure where the connecting galleries are visible. If needed, the structure can be dismantled and reconstructed, on a smaller scale, in another part of the city.

The different sections of the building make up a geometrical variety symbolizing the tradition and regional customs which define the Italian identity: a type of mosaic of which each of the parts show a single picture. The form also highlights the topographic complexity of Italian cities, with its numerous short narrow roads and alleys which suddenly open onto a large square, a characteristic which can also be found in the traditional Chinese urban centres. A psychophysical effect of comfort is given by an internal garden, the presence of water and natural light which spreads throughout the area across the patios and by the walls.

Croatian pavilion

[IMG]http://i44.************/2rzue61.jpg[/IMG]

What is Croatia like? What we can think of seems to be the elegant style of soccer genius and the lattice patterns chequered with red and white. A simple movie in the Croatia Pavilion at the Aichi Expo greatly enriches people's knowledge of this strange country and then touches them with its unique national charm.
After entering the Croatia Pavilion, you will see a small rectangular movie hall. The walls around the hall serve as the screen. All the video is about saltern, the origin of life in this coastal country. The sea reflecting diversified colors and lights turns into a wide stretch of shining grains of salt. It is the work site for salt production on Pagu island where heaps of salt is divided into numerous salterns across which carts of salt slowly move...
When visitors are bewildered by the simple and plain pictures, a door will appear on one side of the walls. Led to the main exhibition zone, visitors find a saltern 300 to 400 square meters in size right under their feet. Visitors slowly walk along a wooden path across the saltern while some curious ones stepped on the saltern on purpose, leaving a few footprints, deep or shallow. There are only about 80 visitors each time. Filled with doubts and expectations, they don't speak much, which, together with dark lightings, make the whole pavilion extremely pure.
Reaching the end of the wooden path, visitors find themselves rise slowly with the wooden floor beneath their feet. At the same time, an image of a kite chequered with red and white was projected onto the wall. While everyone's eyes are fixed upon the kite floating around on the walls, the platform is raised to a height of about 5 meters. Looked down, the saltern the visitors have just walked through turns into a huge screen 15×25㎡in size. All the visitors can lean against the fence and watch the video underneath.
The aerial video perfectly fits visitors' position. The visitors feel as if they are the kite flying high over Croatia, enjoying a bird's eye view of the unique sceneries of this nation. Starting from the salterns, the video shows the Adriatic Sea, the Croatian harbor, the ancient streets and towns with red roofs, neatly mowed lawns, high mountains, green orchards... What's amazing is that people in the video such as sportsmen climbing the mountain, countrywomen picking grapes and people enjoying a feast on a farm, all look up and warmly wave to the audience, with broad and subtle smiles of the Croatian people. With the unique creative idea and musical effects, people are intoxicated even if the pictures are not that beautifully made.
The kite reappears at the end of the video, and then gently rests in a saltern. The visitors are enchanted and they seem to start yearning for the strange Croatia and its special culture and customs.
While leaving the Croatia Pavilion, every visitor will get a little pack of salt and a small bottle of seawater, on the packing of which is written a sentence reading "A drop of water, a grain of salt, Croatia". Is it diligence, efforts, fortitude or wisdom? Maybe all. The more succinct, the more profound. This is really worth learning.

USA Pavilion


The USA Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010 will present a dynamic, emotional story that radiates powerful core values shared by both the Chinese and American people – sustainability, teamwork, health and the fundamental belief that America is a place of opportunity where those who seek to change the world for the better will always thrive and prosper.
