When winter turns to spring
The concept of the Canada Pavilion is “Regeneration”. It is inspired by the thawing of frozen waterways at the onset of spring. The pavilion’s exterior architecture represents a natural phenomenon seen in Canada called an "ice jam" when ice on the surface of a river melts and flows, creating intriguing ephemeral ice formations. In contrast to the icy exterior, the interior will express Canada’s warmth, openness and optimism. Visitors will discover and experience Canada’s innovation, diversity, and creativity, as well as its commitment to sustainability.
