GS Caltex Pavilion

GS Caltex Pavilion
GS Caltex Pavilion

Symbol of energy: At the Korean Expo, the corporate pavilion of GS Caltex, a Korean oil corporation, illustrates the company's mission and its visions for the future. The pavilion architecture is presented as a dynamic ensemble, which, at first glance, is reminiscent of an outsized rice field. Eighteen metres high, so-called blades sway like grass in the wind. By touching, individual sensitive blades are activated and illuminated. A central located star-shaped, mirrored pavilion building is optically withdrawn in its entirety. Via raised corners of the star, the visitor can gain access to the also mirrored entrance area on the ground floor.
