EXPO 2010 Shanghai - LED facades
Text: Frank Kaltenbach, Peter Popp
While the exteriors of the country pavilions in Pudong begin to glow from the inside like lanterns, the glittering shells of the Expo axis and the 3D-textured media facades in Puxi display spectacular projections that reflect on the river, creating a unique scene.
In Shanghai the lights go out earlier than one would expect in a world metropolis. At 23:30 on the dot, the glittering facades are turned off and a dedicated cleaning crew clears the Bund area with a fire hose, watched by the last stragglers from the Expo. The Expo location is open half an hour longer – the pavilions themselves close at 22:00, though.
