Singapore Pavilion, Shanghai Expo 2010

新加坡館, 上海世博會裡 2010

 

The theme of the Singapore Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo in 2010 is Urban Symphony, a tribute to Singapore where a delicate harmony of cultures exists in a city state. The theme is best expressed in the architecture of the pavilion that resembles a musical box. It is an orchestra of elements- from the water fountain movements on the plaza, to the rhythm of fenestrations on the façade, to the interplay of sounds and visuals on the different levels, to the mélange of flora on the roof garden.

 

在2010年上海世博會裡,新加坡館的主題是「城市交響曲」,這是對新加坡的一種表達和諧文化在一個城市國家裡反映了民族之間的包容。新加坡館酷似一個音樂盒,如此的建築是對主題做出最好的回應。建築設計包含了音樂的元素-廣場上的音樂頂泉,外牆設計象微著跳躍的五線譜,聲音和視覺上都呈現出不同層次節奏的互動:屋頂花園更帶動「花園城市」特有的熱帶景觀。
