japan01

Bringing the past, present and future exhibitions under single roof, the “Zi Can Dao” (meaning purple silkworm island) is the Japanese entry at Shanghai Expo 2010. Built on a 6,000 square meter plot, the Japanese pavilion is an emblem of the connections and exchanges of technologies and human activities between Japan and China for a better and sustainable future. Featuring solar energy collection batteries and a double-layer membrane capable of filtering sunshine, the semi-circular “breathing organism” makes efficient use of natural resources for ventilation and power generation with the help of sustainable technologies for the betterment of human life.
