Designed by Haim Dotan, a pioneering Israeli architect, in collaboration with designer Prosper Amir, the Israel Pavilion for Shanghai World Expo 2010 is set to make it presence felt with its unique design. Spreading the message of “Innovation for Better Life,” the pavilion can be divided in three different parts, Whispering Garden, Hall of Light and Hall of Innovations, which unite to make a cohesive architectural unit. The Whispering Garden, as indicated by its name, greets visitors by whispering in both English and Chinese as they enter the arena. On the other hand, the Hall of Light features a 15-meter high screen to display films highlighting the technological advancements of the nation, while the Hall of Innovation is the core of the pavilion. Visitors can talk with Israeli children, scientists, doctors and inventors through a special audio-visual show displayed on the screens. The pavilion, stretched over 2,000 square meters, will cost about $6 million by the end of the Expo.
